Instrument Approach Plates are invaluable to the working pilot, and to any looking to become one. VAI has taken them into the digital realm, once and for all freeing up cabin space for more important things. With VAI you can search and download any of the more than 15,000 charts regularly published by the FAA. Get those that you need at the tap of a finger. With VAI you can search by airport identifer or city name to quickly and easily find the chart you are looking for, with no fuss.

VAI also gives its users free access to chart updates when they are published by FAA. No fees, no forms, no hassle.

Note: VAI does not ship with charts. VAI offers access to search and download FAA charts. User must initiate the downloads.

Note: At this time VAI only offers access to charts published by the FAA (U.S. charts only)

Note: New charts will continue to be made available until October 2012. It is unclear at this time whether or not new charts will be available after October 2012. For more information please visit
