I’ve created a map theme (LittleNavmapOFMTheme) for Little Navmap that makes it possible to use open flightmaps for VFR flight planning and navigation.
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.
This is amazing. Thank you. I’m already using a similar extension for LNM that adds the IFR enroute, IFR Low, IFR High, TAC and VFR charts for the entire USA. Your extension is like icing on top. Thank you!
The open flightmaps project is working on more VFR material, like e.g. South Africa plates are available in PDF and PNG on their website. The coverage is being extended. The project is supported by two Universities and community contributors.
Now all you need to do is make and add to LNM VFR/IFR and aerodrome charts for the entire Papua New Guinea and you will never find me in this forum again as I will join Missionary Bush Pilot there spiritually
