Does anyone have a link to a source for downloading Cypriot approach charts? I have tried the Cyprus Department of Civil Aviation website but the registration for access to the AIP does not work (and neither does the login page).
Jeppesen, in their wisdom, have decreed that Cyprus is not part of "Europe", so not in their Europe coverage.......and a one-shot trip kit is the stunning cost of €650 for what looks like a (small) handful of plates.
Sometimes I just want to take up boating.........

They are all in SkyDemon, and we have georeferenced them for you.

Yes. I have every AIP downloaded in SD so have access to all instrument charts for the whole of Europe for nothing more than the cost of the SD subscription.

I use the instrument plates on SkyDemon all over the world. The only thing is that they are the ones produced by the Local Aviation Authority and are therefore not standardised as per Jepp.

<nostalgic drift :oops: >

.. whereas HMG after WW2 decided it definitely was, so it was in the BEA, not BOAC, route structure; as (for political reasons) was Tel Aviv. BOAC's world started in Beirut. ISTR that the range both of the Comet 4B and of the Trident was planned around the Nicosia and Tel Aviv non-stop requirements

Hmmmm. All downloaded but not getting the georeferencing. Tested at Staverton this morning. Am I missing something? Is there a whizz-bang setting I need to use?

Can I just say that I had some lovely Lebanese food in Nicosia a few days ago.

Ok, back to the thread...

Umm, except the USA, the area with the largest amount of GA activity in the world!
