Navtech (AERAD) UK Touring Guide
What are these busts heights on the SIDs now? That, I suspect, is a conclusion many companies will come to. One of our pilots reckons they are about to start sorting all the charts by airfield name, if it has one, instead of city. If they are NAVTECH much better on the ground but hate any of the airbourne plates they are so difficult to understand and full of shall we say “differing” information from the origional Aerad plates, and I am used to using both Aerad and Jepps!
They don’t give you the track to fly anymore on a SID, they give you the radial you’re on, in other words the reciprocal number from what you NEED. If I flew to the equivalent standard as these charts are, there’d be thousands of dead people behind me.
Why change something that ‘aint broken? It also doesn’t give QFE but that is no great loss. Read all the above carefully ,agree with most, but my main point is that this amendment doesn’t cover Cat A aircraft.
Well I used them for the first time today and they are pretty abysmal, took me 5 minutes to locate the ILS morse ident, took another 5 minutes to find the airfield elevation, the minima’s at the bottom are just bloody confusing, listing for the airfields we went to today anyway CAT III minima’s first.
How much consultation was taken with the people who actually use these things? Comes to something when you cant figure out your home base from the charts!
The glidpath angle is now written on the vertical profile picture. A booklet explaining changes is linked below: That, my friend, is changing with the times and being open to them.
The inverse presentation of the altitude bust height is retained.

Used them in anger at night week and a half ago they are xerad cluttered and un userfriendly. On the old charts it had a note which explained about North Atlantic departures and if flght had to get the oceanic clearance before departing depending on entry point. Jepps are far from perfect but they are light years ahead of this junk.
Personally I think this is a large step backwards in safety and progression. I think the CAA need to get involved here and start regulating these things.
I suppose the relevant question to ask is did anyone consult the users ie the pilots concerning these proposed changes? On a positive informarion the ground pages are more concise.
Navtech Flight Information Supplement
In all truth my Ops Support department helped me out and supplied me with the correct docs. Yes the company should have told us but they didn’t until we turned up for work, pulled out the new plates supplemet phoned ops to say the plates were all wrong – they said oh but we told you all about them ages ago And another thing – which idiot proof read these plates numerous errors pages missing etc etc.
Did anyone see those cheap Jeppesen Supplement books they brought out last year ingormation pretty colours. I’ve only used the new charts a few times so I’m not really used to them yet. During the day bad at night nightmare. How can this be an improvement?! Have they had any pilot input to put these together? Its supplment calling East Midlands, “Nottingham”, no one can find it, which is why it changed its name back to East Midlands.
These plates are a total shambles. Change I can deal with, if it is competent, but take a supplment at the airfield layout map of Aberdeen for example. The second goes by the name of the SID designator. As ravfooty said, the EU-ops minima are now on the chart and most captains I’ve flown with so far have been unaware of the fact that the JAR-ops minima we use are at the back.
We, over 50s need nice big numbering, lettering. Where aerd all the notes gone at the bottom of the charts. Over the years i have had my fair inforkation of Jeppesen and they owt no better. It is retained for those airlines which prefer this format Green is hard to see against black in the lighting of cockpits in the dark. Where has aerad gone. All radio beacons and waypoints are identical in depiction. Your Company should have warned you about this.
Thanks gents and happy hours.
Meddling for the sake of bureaucracy. THAT is the biggest clue that these changes were done by someone who has never operated an aeroplane. No mention of this at all.
We had the booklet issued to every pilot in the company, with reminders to study it before the implementation date. Perhaps it’s xupplement for everyone who hates the new format to lobby their flt ops department and get them to vote with their feet.
