AERONAUTICAL CHARTS OVERVIEW
The availability of up-to-date aeronautical charts and publications at ATC facilities is
important. Outdated or incorrect publications have been the source of numerous aircraft
accidents. You are required to possess a thorough knowledge of the maintenance and
use of the charts and publications required at your facility. The branch chief normally
has the responsibility for chart and publication procurement, but all personnel of the
branch should be proficient in maintaining and using charts necessary for flight safety.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has the overall responsibility for the
management and distribution of all Department of Defense (DOD) navigational charts
Table 2-3 lists some of the more common NGA products that you will use in your facility.
The table is not a complete list of NGA products, and your facility may use other NGA
products not listed here.
