I am aware that you can get all up-to-date charts for the USA completely free of charge. However, are all other charts for other airports just out of date? I already have a navigraph annual FMS data subscription but the charts subscription is out of my budget. Does everyone that flies on vatsim pay for charts? How does it work? (I'm fairly new to vatsim by the way)

Hey Henry! Great question, I am sure a lot of other pilots out there are wondering this as well. Of course if you can afford it, Navigraph would be best, but if not, no problem. ( Most members use Navigraph ). SkyVector allows you to view all Departure and Arrival charts for just about every U.S. airport. To use it, simply go to this link: https://skyvector.com/airports, enter your desired airport icao, and enter. Then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and bam, all the charts you need to perform your flights. Hope this helps!

NOTE: SkyVector does not have charts for every airport ( Mainly use for U.S. airports )

Charts for European airports are usually free and can be found at the local AIP. AIPs in some Europeans coutries charge a fee, but these can be circumvented by getting the charts via Eurocontrol (www.ead.eurocontrol.int). You need to register, but it's free.
