Default IFR & VFR Real Charts

Compiled by Alfredo -117-, real life pilot, for our squadron, BOE -117-.

This charts definitely deserves to be shared .
In english and with QNH & QFE altitudes.

Note: the original attached charts were deleted to prevet copyright issues. There is a new link with free ones.






Contains the charts for the following airports:
  • Sochi
  • Batumi
  • Tbilisi
  • Nalchik
  • Mineralye Vody
  • Krasnodar
  • Anapa
  • Gelendzhik
Notice that not all airports in DCS have ILS/TACAN stations as in real life.
Airports Data for DCS World:






28-01-13: Visual aproach charts (great VFR but not IFR): http://www.virtual-jabog32.de/index....t=37&file=1214

28-01-13: Atached IFR Chart for Batumi, adapted for DCS-World Magnetic declination (or error ).

29-01-13: Link for free russian AirPorts charts, link provided by Bad CRC (complete: Routes, VRF & IFR): http://aviadocs.net/aip/html/eng.htm
(Charts under AIP. ..../ AP PartIII/ AD 2/ AD 2.1.). Note: dosent include Georgian Airports.

Jorge: I'm working on an IFR tutorial for my youtube channel. The issue I've come across is that the real life charts (I love the jepp charts, but I end up using the FAA charts for everything since they're free) don't match to the navaids in DCS. TACANs being on the top of the airfield and so on, for instance. Did you guys make "DCS adjusted" charts or is this just the actual IFR LO and TPP for the region?

Would like to see the finished tutorial Headspace.
Charts are not adjusted.
As far as we tested as long as you choose an airport in DCS with TACAN and ILS, charts will work OK.
For IFR, specially for final you have to correct the heading by 4 to 6 degrees to make it perfect. I suposse the difference in magnetic bearing is because the static magnetic deviation in DCS world and the one in the charts dated on 2006, I will ask one of our RL pilots. Actually I dont know if bearings and radials in aeronautical charts are real or magnetic.

Example: Batumi bearing for RW 13: Charts 126 degrees, DCS world 120 degrees.

AFAIK Tacan beacons in DCS are on the side of the runways, and work OK.

Turning bank angle for A-10C on basic should be approximately 15 to 20 degrees.

We have a few custom made charts made for instrucción (by Alfredo):

You probably mean magnetic variation--the magnetic pole being offset from the true pole. Deviation is caused by devices in the aircraft (and in the case of military aircraft, ferrous materials such as armor plating, weapons, and so forth) affecting the magnetic field.

Bearings and radials in aeronautical charts are magnetic. For navaid radials, the bearings may sometimes be offset from the current variation due to when the navaid was set. The chart will indicate correct bearing.

For a latitude as far south as Georgia, the variation is not going to change by six degrees in just six years. The ILS localizers in DCS are just not aligned with their real-world counterparts, or something else is going on.

FWIW I have an instrument rating in real life as well. I haven't gotten deeply involved in the DCS ILS system until recently, so someone like BlueRidgeDx may have a much better answer for you.

Thanks. It's always tricky doing them since there's always a few people who will jump on any tiny error in a very complex subject matter after you make it. But my main goal is to show that a complex game like DCS can be made accessible to the average person, and also that it's capable of modeling some very interesting real-world stuff.

I'd be careful distributing those Jepp charts boys. Your friends airline might get a nasty email from Jeppesen. Having a Jepp subscription is not a license to share them on the Internet, expired or not. It's all copyright.

Actually you're right Kaiza.
I even uploaded the current 2013 charts and not the old ones from 2006 you can see in the first post pics.

Deleting de link. If someone has any question, send me a PM.

PS: Outdated aeronautical charts have no commercial use.

i downloaded the DCS MANAGER app for my pad, and i have all the charts and runway layuouts as well. Which is awesome because i have no damn idea where i start on a massive airport and have no clue where to taxi to runway lol. It helps. I also personally adjusted the headings on the printout of the table frequencies to make sure my course knob is set right.
