Many military airports covered with Navigraph

Post by asdro »

May be some of the Navigraph users have noticed that before, but it seems like more and more military airports were covered with charts in the past months.


Two years ago only a few major airports like Travis AFB and some other airbases were covered with charts.

Now you find many smaller airbases like

Wunstorf AB near Hannover in germany (largest A400M base in the world) got many charts last year.


Also Al Udeid, Mildenhall, Weddington, Lakenheath got many new charts.

I dont say that they got all charts, but most of them.

For example STARS most dont have, but SIDs and ground charts.

Especially the ground charts can be helpful for AFCAD updates ect.


I thought it might be interesting and wanted to post it here in the scenery forum.

What does Navigraph cost and is it better than Little Navmap, which is free?

I think it is 8 Euros something a month.
When I started looking at MSFS I investigated it and decided that it was just too much for what it is. It gives you charts for airfields. Lots of charts, but do you actually need them?

I came to the conclusion that if you were flying a lot in a realism controlled environment then it would be an option, but it is of almost no use for the flying I have done. Some people can afford a 100Euros a year and some will find it indispensable. I don't believe that most would get their moneys worth.

I dont know Navmap.

Personally I like to try flying with charts. You also have enroute charts.

Airnav.com will give you access to download free Jeppessen charts for many, many airfields - though mostly US. No subs, no sign-up, you just need to know where to look.

Littlenavmap is great for seeing if your airfield’s location is accurate, though I wouldn’t regard its depicted airfield layout as particularly reliable.

I never tried the other websites.
When I have time I will check that.
About Navigraph what I have to add is that many charts are brand new.
Many are from 2021. I think a few military airport charts even got updated just a few months ago.

They should be up to date with the latest AIRACS.
