Although the song claims that it never rains in Southern California, that's not to say that fog, clouds, mist, and other visibility-restricting phenomena don't make their presence known from time to time. When nothing but blue skies gives way to a whiter shade of pale, be prepared with the current edition of the FAA's South West V3 Bound IFR Terminal Procedures publication. Though just 5 3/8" x 8 1/4" , this bound volume contains all instrument approach plates; departure (DPs/SIDs) & arrival (STARs) charts; airport/taxiway diagrams; and charted visual flight procedures (CVFPs) for the southern half of The Golden State. Like all FAA Terminal Procedures publications, the South West V3 Bound volume is revised on the FAA's standard 56-day cycle. We currently offer this item as both an ongoing subscription and as a one-time purchase. A compact, info-rich IFR tour de force for all your Socal aviation adventures.
