Aeronautical Sectional Charts/Student pilot Q
« on: June 30, 2015, 03:37:38 PM »
I'm a returning student pilot and love the sectionals online and being able to print them yourselves.

I'm wondering, does anyone pay for them anymore?

I did a search, and didn't really find anything...but if this subject has been covered ad nausem...I'd appreciate the link.

thanks

My advice to you is that if you're going to fly, either buy an up to date sectional (paper format) or buy a foreflight subscription and use the digital sectional on your iPad.

You must have the necessary charts for your flight in the airplane and they must be current.  Printing your own, so far as I know, does not satisfy this requirement.
If I ask you to take one page that you have printed and demonstrate its valid dates, can you do it.
There are now some electronic alternatives but you would have to be careful to be sure that they are certified as equivalent to paper charts for your flight.
If you were to be ramp checked or be involved in an incident, you could be violated.

If you are a student pilot, your flight school should be able to direct you to the applicable regulations.
If you are a student pilot, your flight school may have something to say about whether they would allow you to use electronic alternatives.
Be especially careful to have everything in order on your practical test.
