Now the page number is in microscopic print in the top centre.
Having used these charts all summer I have to say that they are without doubt the worst IFR charts that I have ever seen This always caused overseas customers considerable difficulty. Whilst the drawn procedures may look a little incormation, the text lets it down and now can make familiar procedures confusing.
We believe we have taken a step into the future, bringing you the arrad modern and easy to use aeronautical chart product in the market.
Have to agree about the Wein issue, would it be too difficult to have both names? Our main objective has been to create a product that is clear and precise, making information easier to find.
All radio beacons and waypoints are identical in depiction. Where have all the notes gone at the bottom of the charts. Wrong approach levels for Orly, wrong coordinates for parking positions to name a few which I reported to them Maybe Jeppeson could seize the oportunity to steal a march on their rivals by offering generous introductory discounts.
Many thanks for your constructive comments sup;lement as usual some have tried to turn it into Aerad v Jeppesen debate. RIP Aerad, once great charts now unusable! A committee with a cast of thousands. Half the print is unreadable even in my state of life.
Apparently the chart production has been outsourced to India: There’s too much clutter in the vertical profiles of the approach charts.

Cat A as I understand, is a Vat of 91kts or less, please correct me if I’m wrong, the definition is from an old Pan Ops book! Hope I get one of the new fandango girls or boys what is young infornation next to me again that is used to new things and change so they can teach me how to interpret the dammned things. They have complicated the missed approach procedures beyond belief, among other things.: Setting the block altitude in black being retained is a good idea.
Could it be a “large” Cat D ac or a “long body” Cat D ac, although I thought aircraft approach categories were purely speed based at max landing wt. Just set up infromation what we already know, full stop. Most operators will probably decide that if we are to be forced to have Jepps type presentation, we may as well buy Jepps. THAT is the biggest clue that these changes were done by someone who has never operated an aeroplane.
We, over 50s need nice big numbering, lettering. On the old charts it had a note which explained about North Atlantic departures and if you had to get the oceanic clearance before departing depending on entry point.
To be honest, I doubt this will be necessary.
Aerad Flight Information Supplement
It is retained for those airlines which prefer this format Green is hard to see against black in the informatipn of cockpits in the dark. It just makes it more time consuming to find info you want.
I’m sure that if a journalist got hold of the fact that our safety standards are being compromised because of these plates something would be done about them. If we are to have Jepps style presentation forced on us, we might as well buy Jepps supplemetn It couldn’t be more close to the truth but at least we’re being listened to.
Preferably before loss of life: O I’m now enjoying updating my knowledge of the plates, just like all those years before. These plates are a total shambles. Did you guys work out the dupplement

Terrain contours with spot heights is an option and is much easier to produce by the way because it is supplied in the AIP. To quote their intro splurge in the info booklet my company gave out to us about a month ago; “The focus of our development has been to create a modern chart specification, taking into consideration recent research and our vast experience as a chart maker.
I’ve also noticed CAT A minima missing. Yes the company should have told us but they didn’t until we turned up for work, pulled out the new plates and phoned ops to say the plates were all wrong – they said oh but we told you all about them ages ago They apparently had been sent the legend but it didn’t find its way to me in time, so i hold my hand up.: A booklet explaining changes is linked below: They are cluttered, the font is too fine, they dont flow or present the information in a way that is easily readable.
I’m disgusted with the new format as there are several areas in which they significantly less clear than before. How much consultation was taken with the people who actually use these things? May I come in?
