And....how does the fear of being potentialy cought by the licencepolice feel?

Just breathe, it can just as well be a promotional item to get Jeppesen more attention andmore customers...
Its how you look at it + we dont have something called like FBI in my part of the world. ^^

The 'fear' emotion runs deeper in society than you think. You could say certain individuals did their job well on their implementation. Start with Yoda's teachings.

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.

Yes what I ment was magnetic declination / variation, made a bad translation. I like sailing and have done it in many seas so I'm used to reading nautical charts, even in the GPS era. Love the old school, using the pínula, the compass and other map tools. AFAIK declination deppends on magnetic north and many other factors, like magma composition and flow below you, etc. Nautical charts gives you real bearing & the magnetic declination for a specific year and how to correct it over time.

Well, the fact is that magnetic North in DCS Black Sea Map is different for a few degrees from real north and from real aeronautical charts with magnetic bearings.

Maybe you can compile and share the free charts you have for those who doesent have the Jeppessen?

If they are easy to edit I can correct the courses and adapat the IFR ones for DCS. I will be a great tool for the sim.

This template with real naviagtion waypoints for DCS might be of your interest:

No fear, just doing what's right .
And hopping more simmers get interested in IFR.

The charts that are freely available in the US are, obviously, for US airports.

Yes,that what I found when I did a search, nothing free for the Black Sea region.
I will think of something to share with DCS pilots.

But all the charts have been done before, just can' remember who but it was in early beta around the start of 2011 I think.

Those are airfield diagrams, not IAPs.

FYI - There's an app for the PC, iPad and Android called SimPlates that has approach charts for over 70,000 airports around the world. Costs $25 bucks and allows you to download the plates you want so there wouldn't be any licensing issues to worry about

Yes you are right. I thought they covered both but they do not. DCS Manager does.
