PR: TRI-NAV CHARTS: All-new “One-Chart Solution” for IFR & VFR Flight

TRI-NAV CHARTS: All-new “One-Chart Solution” for IFR & VFR Flight

The convenience and detail of GPS; the reliability of paper

June 29, 2010: Lakeland, Florida: Howie Keefe’s new TRI-NAV Charts introduce a whole new chart concept in atlas format for the cross-country pilot. Charts are “combo” charts that keep you legal for both IFR or VFR navigation, with convenient Internet updates conforming to the FAA 28-day cycle.

Keefe pioneered the atlas format for aviation charts with SKY PRINTS – the VOR system for VFR flight. Later, he introduced an atlas of IFR charts with an easy-update system; now, it’s the best of all worlds: Howie Keefe’s TRI-NAV charts for GPS in IFR & VFR.

TRI-NAV charts use the FAA IFR Low Altitude Enroute Charts and add VFR and comm data. The FAA must assume you now get freqs from plates and IFR control­lers -- but TRI-NAV Charts include freqs for Towers, B&C contact, CTAF, UNICOM, plus ASOS and AWOS. Helping the VFR pilot (and IFR pilot flying in visual conditions) are city name and position relative to airport; major highways; and major bodies of water: both rivers and lakes.

Also included in the atlas are planning aids; miles between airports; Rand-McNally’s Interstate/U.S. Highways map for ground travel; and, very importantly, topographical relief charts that show mountain areas, detailed terrain, cities, and even runway layouts.

Three TRI-NAV Charts atlases cover the North, South, and West U.S. Inaugural Edition price for the first atlas is $69 per year; the second is $59, and the third is $49 – that’s $177 per year, for all three; online updates cost $35. (An approach plate service is also available at $50 per atlas region.)
