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 6,800 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.
In this release (fall 2018) we have included Commercial Airline Overlay (CAO) charts in addition to the standard Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) charts. CAO charts were developed to better support pilots that primarily operate category C and D aircraft. It uses Constant Descent Final Approach (CDFA) technique whenever possible; has a to-scale approach chart depiction of Minimum Safe Altitude (MSA); and features DME reference circles to show relevant distance and radial information to a suitable VORDME, ILS/LOC DME, stand-alone DME or TACAN.
In previous releases we have also added an interactive and scalable high and low airspace enroute chart with route visualization and moving maps functionality. In coming releases we plan to add procedure visualization and Visual Flight Rules (VFR) charts.
Navigraph Charts can be used for free in a feature complete demo version which includes access the airports in Alicante, Spain (LEAL) and Ontario, CA, US (KONT). The enroute chart has no area restriction.
Navigraph Charts contains the following features:
Worldwide and current Jeppesen IFR charts: 6,800+ airports covered (requires Navigraph subscription)
Moving maps: connect to X-Plane, FSX and Prepar3D to show the simulator's aircraft position on the charts in real time (requires Navigraph Simlink on simulator computer)
Night mode: Dark theme version of the charts for low ambient light conditions
Flight organization: Collect charts for departure, destination and alternates in a single place
Chart color coding and pinboards: Easily filter specific chart types and pin charts for quick access
Interactive enroute charts: Click and search airports, waypoints, navaids, airways, controlled and restricted airspaces, FIRs/UIRs, holding patterns and more
Route visualization: Show your flights route on the enroute charts
For the ultimate experience we recommend subscribing to Navigraph Ultimate which ensures that you are always flying using the most recent charts and navdata used by all online pilots and air traffic controllers in the flight simulation community.
Navigraph Ultimate includes, in addition to worldwide charts access, updated navdata parsed into more than 120 different addon formats including aircraft like PMDG B737/747/748/777, Qualitywings B787, Flight Factor A320, IXEG 737 and many more. Navigraph Ultimate also includes regular updates to the navigation databases in flight simulators such as X-Plane 11.
Please note that:
- This product is for home flight simulation use only and must not be used for real world navigation.
- This product is free to use in demo mode but requires a Navigraph account.
- This product requires a Navigraph Charts or Navigraph Ultimate subscription for full access to all airport charts.
- We recommend that you install Navigraph Charts on your desktop too. All changes you make to Flights, Bookmarks, and Pinboards are immediately reflected on your tablet.
- With a current Navigraph Charts or Navigraph Ultimate subscription you can also access airport charts in the virtual Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on the virtual flightdeck of many addon aircraft.

Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
Must have...1 issue
This is a must have app for flight sim. The previous versions were amazing, but Jepp charts with moving maps takes the app to a whole new level. Only bug is that when entering a SID/STAR on the route for a flight, I get 'PALACE1 waypoint not recognized'. Do I have to manually enter all the waypoints on departures/arrivals?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
