Are you into flight simulation? Navigraph Charts is the preferred charts app in the flight simulation community offering the largest coverage available of Jeppesen charts updated continuously every 28 days following the AIRAC cycle.
Navigraph Charts allows you to search, view and organize airport charts from 7,000 airports around the globe. You can connect it to FSX, Prepar3D or X-Plane, to plot your position on charts, or use it independently to plan your route.

Really wonderful app!
This is a five star app in the sense that it works very cleanly, and the per month price is way more affordable than forking over the per year price the charts used to cost in my paycheck to paycheck life. The app and charts are beautiful and wowed me from the start, having used so many NACO charts in the past. I love the Jepp charts. The only qualm I have, and thus the lack of the fifth star, is that it doesn’t support FS2004, which I’ve kept only because my laptop runs it super smoothly. Would also love to see some weather overlays in the future. Keep up the good work!
WARNING - Keep Your Old Version
I was running an older version which allowed you to select the charts you want which would then create a tab for each item. This was a great reference feature. The latest version seems to no longer allow you to do this since there are no buttons to select the map/chart and you are required to go back to each area and reselect your chart every time. I have no idea who made this decision or why but in my opinion this app is ruined and I will start looking elsewhere for navigational tools and subscriptions. This subscription costs about $80 USD annually and after what has been done to the iPad app it’s simply not worth it. If I were able to give a negative star rating I would. I wish I could get back my old version. Newer is not better.
I don’t need a flight planner: just charts. I’m guessing the high scores are for individuals looking for a flight planning tool but if you want just simple chart features this app is not for you in my opinion.
The easiest add-on for sim enthusiasts
Flying, especially IFR, doesn’t fit into my family situation right now, but I do miss the mental challenge of planning and executing a flight well. I got X-plane, but quickly discovered that without nav updates, it limited my ability to do what I wanted. Enter Navigraph.
While integrating the charts desktop app on either a MacBook or Wintel machine requires a bit of “ok, what step did I miss?”, Charts on an iPad is just the opposite. It uses your same account, and as long as you have both your iPad and sim machine on the same LAN, they magically find each other. Voila! You have not only a moving maps display, but a full chart book on a separate display.
If you’re trying to take your flight simulation to the next level, but not quite sure you’re ready to get into the dedicated hardware and panels, this is a great addition that makes brushing up your navigation techniques convenient and inexpensive.
I’ve not used it with any sim except X-plane (11), but my impression is that it integrates about as neatly with all the other popular ones out there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
