For pilots who want government chart information for flights to the Caribbean, Pacific, and Hawaii, you'll now be able to get the charts from the FAA.
AOPA has worked with the Department of Defense and FAA for three years to ensure that these charts remained available to pilots after the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) stopped publishing them with the Oct. 25 airspace cycle.
While the NGA low en route chart for the Caribbean expired Oct. 25, the same chart is available from the FAA. The Caribbean Supplement and instrument approach procedures published by the NGA are good through Dec. 20. The FAA is currently working to make them available after that date.
AOPA has compiled a list of which charts the FAA will continue to publish and which will no longer be available.
For information about purchasing these charts from the FAA, visit the National Aeronautical Charting Office Web site. Also, see the FAA's charting notices for the Caribbean and the Pacific Route and Hawaii.

The Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
