Where do controllers find approach plates?

February, 24, 2020 by

Simplest way is to simply search on a search engine “insert ICAO approach plate”. There are a ton of free resources that provide approach plates for a large amount of airports around the world. And it’s free.

There are of course paid services thought that provide charts such as ForeFlight, NaviGraph, etc.

We use approach plates to access the arrival and departure routes into the airport, the airport diagram, approach types and other miscellaneous information.
