Introduction

In the weekend of January 8/9, 2011, Rene made a flying trip in Greece. The purpose was to get prepared for another, longer trip, later on in the year. It seems that there are not many private pilots in Greece, and flying resources are limited. There are no official VFR charts available from the Greek authorities, and also there are no Jeppesen VFR charts available that cover Greece. 1:500,000 aeronautical US government charts were in the past readily available, but these Tactical Pilotage Charts (TPC's) have been decommissioned a few years back. A paper set of TPC's that cover Greece could still be found at an internet map store. These charts are getting collectors items, though they are good for pilotage only. The depicted airspace on the Tactical Pilotage Charts (and on the Operational Navigation Charts, or ONC's) is obsolete. An airspace map was homemade, compiled from a current IFR low level chart and a not current GPS database.
