Navigraph Charts 8 in Beta Testing; Check out the new Preview Video

Navigraph Charts 8 will add a range of new features as partially showcased in this new preview video.

For a while now, Navigraph Charts has proven to be one of the most useful tools in the flight simulation community. Being able to access charts on pretty much any device means that navigating airports and the skies is easier than ever. However, this hasn’t stopped Navigraph from building on the tool to make it even better.

Known as Navigraph Charts 8, the new update will add a range of exciting new features that many have been asking for. This includes VFR chart implementation, with visual reference points, flyways, avoid zones and much more. To also help with VFR navigation, there are new data layers with terrain, roads, railroads, landmarks, etc.

The new Navigraph Charts will also come with 3D globe projection, improved airspace visualisation, and also airport weather and runway winds. The short teaser video below gives you a good idea of what to expect with Navigraph Charts 8, particularly with the new VFR features.

Navigraph says that the new chart system is being tested with over 1000 users and they are putting it through its paces. More information on an exact initial release will be coming soon.
