FAA To Exit Printed Chart Sales Business
To cut costs and improve efficiency, the FAA is moving to end its direct-to-public retail sales of aeronautical charts and related paper products. Last week the agency stopped accepting or renewing chart subscriptions. While individual charts will be available through the agency’s website through September, on October 1 it will stop selling individual charts. The FAA will continue to print those products and make them available through its worldwide network of authorized chart sales agents.
