We have Q service for the US and Latin America but have the old 'style' revisions for Canada - don't ask me why. I only do Canadian revisions about once every 6 months - I hate them with a passion. In my 2 years on this airplane we've never been to Canada.
Ahhhh, gotta love JeppView. Updating the entire U.S. takes about 3 minutes with a CD. Then all you've gotta do is hit print, cut 'em out, and staple (or bind) them together. Only thing is, if you're going on a long trip, or the weather is super crappy its a good idea to grab a pack of NOS ones as well...just in case you end up at an airport you didnt print plates for.
Anybody know the legal status of the plates you can get off of AOPA? I use them a lot because when I print them out they are nice and large, full screen. I allways check them against my NOAA charts though...just wondering if its legal to use those in case I leave my nos plates at home or somthing.
I've never used them(or seen them for that matter) but there are 2 important questions to ask - number 1 is how often are they updated and number 2 does it say anywhere on the chart or anywhere else on the website that they are not to be used for navigation?
