In 1964, if you wanted to learn to fly, you could access an airplane, fuel for the plane, and a flight instuctor to teach you for $18.00 per hour. A sectional chart cost all of fifty cents, was printed on paper, and after six months of folding and refolding was more often than not tattered and torn.
Forty seven years later the plane, fuel, and instructor cost $150.00. The sectional chart, until recently, was still made of paper, still tore from the constant folding and refolding, and costs $10.00.
Aeronautical Charts Services Inc. proudly announces DuraCharts, sectional charts that are accurately updated and printed by master craftsmen with over 25 years of aeronautical chart printing experience for the U.S. Department of Defense. What makes DuraCharts special is the stock they are printed on. It is bright white, easy to read and virtually tear resistant...and DuraCharts are priced below other charts on the market.
An active charter pilot could easily spend $6000.00 or more per year on lesser quality sectional charts. Now, DuraCharts sectionals are available by subscription or individually for only $8.00 per chart, and they are built to last.
