For over 50 years, the Flight Guide Manual has set the standard for quality, comprehensive airport and supplementary data that general aviation pilots depend on. Flight Guide Manuals are produced in a kneeboard size format (5.25 x 8.25), are spiral-bound and weigh about 1 lb each.
Best of all, each guide now comes with the ability to get on-line updates. Information is updated on the Flight Guide website on a daily basis – so before you take off, simply check and/or print the relevant pages you’ll need for your trip. You will no longer have to receive paper updates for airports that you may or may not want information on. This is now the best of both worlds – a printed reference guide with the ability to print your own up-to-the-minute updates!
