How to use the Chart Bulletin

Most Sectional charts are printed every six months; however, if your chart is more than 8 weeks old it probably isn't current. Aeronautical information changes frequently; more frequently than every six months. That is why we publish the Aeronautical Chart Bulletin in the Notices Section of the Chart Supplement every 56 days and why it is important that you consult the Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) prior to each flight. FAA regulations state that a pilot must be familiar with all available information concerning a flight. This includes having up-to-date charts and keeping them current. Updating your charts is as important as any other flight planning responsibility.

Sample
