These charts are the most recent addition to the growing list of worldwide aviation charting products available from Garmin, which are compatible with select Garmin avionics and portables. Additional charts such as ground movement charts and airport diagrams are also available as part of the European FliteCharts database.
European FliteCharts provide enhanced situational awareness when used with Garmin products because they offer pilots geo-referencing capabilities for many approaches. This feature conveniently overlays the aircraft position onto the chart so pilots can easily identify their progress in-flight as they fly an approach.
