For southern aviators who fly in the central Gulf Coast region, the FAA's New Orleans Sectional Aeronautical Chart is an immensely valuable source of essential aeronautical info packed into a foldable, full-color chart. As is characteristic of the FAA's entire lineup of sectional charts, the New Orleans Sectional contains such need-to-know aviation data as 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 New Orleans Sectional covers much of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida Panhandle, and even a sizable chunk of the Gulf of Mexico. 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. A low-cost, high-value publication that's should be a "no-go" item for every pilot in the central Gulf Coast region.
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.
