VFR Map for Little Navmap
There are plenty of VFR maps available for the US, but for Europe it’s hard to find anything usable without being charged a fortune. Thankfully there is a project called “open flightmaps” that provides quality VFR maps for Europe, all for free.
About open flightmaps
open flightmaps is an open source project that provides high quality VFR maps currently covering Western Europe for the most part. This is interesting for people who want to fly VFR in countries like Germany, for which there are basically no free VFR maps available.
