VFR Navigation Charts - Canada

First of all, I'll echo what everyone is saying.  Excellent site!  I'm a pilot in the RCAF, and have just discovered this site.  I use it all the time along with online planning software.

 

Great IFR charts so far.  What I'd like to know is if you are able to add VFR Navigational Charts (VNC's) for Canada.  You have the World VFR charts, which is a great start, but what will be much more useful is the inclusion of the VNC's published by NavCanada.  These are the Canadian equivalent of the US Sectionals.

 

Thanks again!

Canadian VNC's v World VFR.

Hi Hippie, while waiting for Dave to come along, a quick question if I may.

What's you expert opinion (RCAF Pilot), on The World VFR Charts appearing to show two runways at Thule Air Base (BGTL) and CYRT? Does the VFR Navigational Charts (VNC's) for Canada you mentioned suffer the same problem (re: my original post)?

Thanks for your time.

Hi 729.  Without looking at

Hi 729.  Without looking at the VNC for CYRT I couldn't say if they're suffering the same issue, but I would hazard a guess to say the VNC's probably don't have that problem.  I'm unsure of the source of the World VFR charts used by this site, as most VFR aircraft in Canada utilize VNCs/VTAs/WACs (WACs rarely because of the scale).  A quick look at the two airports you mentioned clearly aren't as depicted by the VFR maps on this site.  In fact Thule's theoretical 2nd rwy appears to be partly a water aerodrome.  All that to say, I wouldn't use the World VFR maps on this site for any sort of navigation as they are very sparse and, at times, inaccurate.  I've flown operationally around the world in my past life as an H-3 Sea King pilot, and we always used TPCs/ONCs when outside of N. America, and they're pretty accurate.  Hope that helps.

 

Cheers!

Thanks Hippie,

Thanks for the  insightful responce, maybe Dave can see if he could add VNC's for Canada in the future?

But my guess is it may be difficult to arrange NavCanada licensing/approval etc. :(

All the best cessna729.

Got it.

I figured out what happened, it's a very simple bug in the code that generates the airport shapes. Unfortunately, the next month's charts are already cooked, so you'll see it fixed for the June 27 charts.

 

Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks for getting it sorted so quick.

Great site. :)

Hi Dave, any answer to the

Hi Dave, any answer to the question I posed originally?  You have the US sectionals, just wondering you'll be able to get the Canadian equivalent.  (VNC's)

 

Thanks again!

Free

SkyVector is a free website.

NavCanada charts are not free.

One of those two statements will have to change before you see VNC's here.

 

Hippie
Roger that.  Didn't know

Roger that.  Didn't know sectionals in the US were free.  'Mericans have a way better deal!

 

All the best.

update for free VNC charts Canada?

Hi Everyone!

Just saw a new app distributed for free on ipad, "fltplan Go", includes free downloadable CFS, VNC and VTA charts for both US AND Canada!

Is there any chance then for Skyvector to have the same maps by dealing with NavCanada? I repeat, they distribute these maps and documentations for free. Don't know if they bought them to navacanada and pay themself through advertising on their app and website but maybe there is a solution for Skyvector?

Thanks to keep us alive of any news about canadian maps.

@bfvww2 fltplan.com does have

@bfvww2 fltplan.com does have revenue they sell canadian VNCs and VTAs, that is why they use it in their app. Now of course if Skyvector was able to get something similar that would be great

 

thanks
