VFR Terminal Area Chart
This is the primary chart used for VFR navigation in and around airports in areas designated as Terminal Areas. Terminal Areas are designated as a result of the busyness of the airspace. Generally Class B. It is a full color chart with a scale of 1:250,000. Their scale is larger as a result of the extra detail required for safe navigation in these busy airspaces. Topographical information. is the same as the Sectional but at twice the scale.
Also known as instrument approach charts, these are IFR charts and give you information required to conduct both Precision (e.g. ILS approach) and Non-Precision (e.g. VOR approach) approaches into an airport. These also contain SIDs - Standard Instrument Departure routes and STARs - Standard Terminal Arrival Routes and Airport Diagrams. There's nothing more satisfying than conducting a precision ILS approach down to minimums.... in both real-life and in your simulator.
