Hey,

I've been learning VOR on FSX lately, and I was wondering if someone knew a site where I can find VOR maps? I'm specifically looking for maps for Canada. Thanks in advance!

VOR is a ***** though...hard to get my head around it...but I found this site to be very useful:

I take it you are looking for En Route Charts, or ERC's?
Tried to find some online, the best I came out with is: http://www.navcanada.ca/ContentDefinitionFiles/Publicat...outeSampleCharts.pdf (http://www.navcanada.ca/ContentDefinitionFiles/Publications/AeronauticalInfoProducts/Charts/EnrouteCharts/EnrouteSampleCharts.pdf)

Maybe you could go to a local flight school, or maybe an airline operational dispatch and ask for some old, out of date charts?

Well, disregard the above...

Found those after some googling:
enroute
http://www.ivao.ca/charts/enr.html

airport charts:

For sim purposes only, of course, they are not for real flight use.

Nice work. I use FSX for the same reasons. It's fun to learn how real aviators navigate in IFR and VFR conditions. Here is a link I use often to find aeronautical charts.

hey brothervoodoo, yes I agree, FSX is wonderful for learning amateurishly some flying concepts! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I love it for that!

I also found that link through jambock's links! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif it's wonderful! a googlemap for ECRs! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
