World Aeronautical Charts
*World Aeronautical Charts cover land areas at a standard size and scale for navigation by moderate speed aircraft and aircraft operating at high altitudes. Because of their smaller scale, 1:1,000,000, these charts do not show as much detailed information as appears on some of the other aeronautical charts. These charts are not recommended for low speed, low altitude aircraft. Charts are revised and updated annually, except for a few in Alaska, Mexico, and the Caribbean which are revised biennially.
