A dif­fer­ent take on the ‘half mil’

Pilot - - BOOKS & GEAR -

Air Mil­lion Zoom Southern Eng­land & Wales 1:500,000 chart £15.99 www.tran­sair.co.uk Dou­ble-sided and show­ing Class A to E Airspace from 500ft to FL105, this new chart cov­ers Southern Eng­land and Wales, to­gether with parts of north­ern France. The ‘Zoom’ series re­tains the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the pop­u­lar Air Mil­lion 1:1,000,000 charts, pre­sent­ing the in­for­ma­tion in much less clut­tered fash­ion than the fami­lar CAA ‘half mil’ (see Tran­sair’s web­site for a side-by side com­par­i­son). The gen­eral graphic de­sign is cer­tainly very dif­fer­ent too — see the Zoom chart de­tail re­pro­duced be­low. Does it work? We have our reser­va­tions about the leg­i­bil­ity of some of the green print but oth­ers may find the clar­ity of these new charts more than makes up for such mi­nor nig­gles — it comes down to per­sonal pref­er­ence. And at the price, it’s not costly to try one for your­self! PW
