However, far too few smaller airports and details are shown on the map, leaving an enormous amount of extra work for any pilot to add additional airports, airstrips and details over time.
Furthermore, the plastic is much thinner than I expected, so the map is extremely prone to creases even given careful handling. For practical purposes, to hang on a wall will require the chart be mounted on a piece of very dense material (a backing material like posterboard except denser and heavier). Then the backing material with mounted map can be attached (nailed or screwed) to a wall. And so, because the plastic is so thin, then entire process of mounting effectively on a wall is much more difficult and cumbersome and expensive than first impressions imply.May 23, 2019Purchased
2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent visual and technical referenceIn an evolving world of “digital-everything”, having a wall chart to gibe the “big picture” continues being an essential element of preflight planning that even the “grizzled bald eagle” can appreciate. I mean, a faithful representation of “sea to shining sea” is not exactly the domain of the diminutive iPhone or Android.
It’s worthy of emblazoning your “man-cave” or “woman’s world of solitude” with it. So, sit back and stare at it. Plan that next adventure. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry didn’t have a tablet. Per chance, he knew something we have seemingly dismissed or forgotten.
And teach your kids true aviation and this great land of ours while you’re at it.May 10, 2019Purchased

It would be nice to have more airports on the chart, some of us still go to the outta the way places for a burger, not just airports with big long paved runways... so it makes it more difficult to plan a trip when you have to guestamate actual locations.... Would recommend- with the caveat that it`s missing smaller airports.February 1, 2019Purchased

The protective laminate is great. It will lay flat right out of the shipping tube so it is easy to manage. I wish it had more city names. There aren't many included.

- Question and Answer
Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 9 answersI plan to use this as a "where have we flown to" map. Will this work for that purpose or do you have another map for that purpose?BEST ANSWER: Absolutely, that's what I am using mine for. I used 3m spray on glue to put it on a smooth 1/4 inch ply, then put a 1x4 frame around it and put it on the hanger wall. You can put a screw on your airport to tie a string to, and use a sharpie to draw a mileage scale (like before sky vector). Buy a template at an office supply to make a circle around places you have been. It's the right size map. Just enough detail and relatively small to show the lower 48.Does this chart ship folded or rolled?BEST ANSWER: The chart ships rolled.How Big is the Map?BEST ANSWER: This map measures 59" x 36".Does any larger and/or more detailed laminated map of this kind exist (especially one with more details and smaller airports/airstrips)?BEST ANSWER: No, this the only chart that is available.As of 10/25/18, I see this chart is good until 12/08/18. Is there going to be an updated version, and if so, when will it be available?BEST ANSWER: Yes, there should be an update after the 12/08/18 chart expires.
