For pilots who fly in the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast region, the FAA's Houston Sectional Aeronautical Chart is the low-cost, info-packed source of situational-awareness-enhancing aviation data that'll help them stay safe and informed from takeoff to touchdown. Like all charts in the FAA's Sectional series, this foldable, full-color chart is loaded with valuable aviation data including airport info (runway lengths, lighting, elevation, services available, surface type, etc.); airspace dimensions; VHF and LF/MF navigational facilities (frequency, ID, and channel); landmarks; cities & towns; elevation/topographic info; ATC entities and associated contact/radio frequencies; bodies of water; obstructions; and much, much more.
The Houston Sectional covers Southeastern Texas and much of Southern Louisiana, including a large portion of the Gulf Coast and even a sliver of Mississippi. Uses the standard 1:500,000 (6.86 nm per inch; 2.70 nm per cm) scale characteristic of sectional charts. Updated every six months. An affordable, intuitive source of need-to-know FAA info that should be a "no-go" item in every Gulf Coast pilot's flight bag.
From the Manufacturer
Sectional Aeronautical Charts are the primary navigational reference medium used by the VFR pilot community. The 1:500,000 scale Sectional Aeronautical Chart Series is designed for visual navigation of slow to medium speed aircraft. The topographic information featured consists of the relief and a judicious selection of visual checkpoints used for flight under visual flight rules. The checkpoints include populated places, drainage patterns, roads, railroads, and other distinctive landmarks. The aeronautical information on Sectional Charts includes visual and radio aids to navigation, airports, controlled airspace, restricted areas, obstructions, and related data. These charts are updated every six months, most Alaska Charts annually.
