The VNC chart book is jointly developed by AOPA and Aeropath. This book contains Visual Navigation Charts (VNCs) for the whole of mainland New Zealand and was designed to enable easier access to charts in cockpits.
Charts within this book are effective on the 30 November 2023
- A4 ring bound format for easy use in the cockpit

- 1:500,000 scale visual navigation charts covering all of mainland New Zealand
- Additional 1:250,000 scale visual navigation charts covering the following locations:

A note on chart information:
- 1:500,000 scale charts are most suited for mid-level cross-country navigation and do not contain complete information below 9,500 ft, or upper airspace information above 9,500 ft.
- 1:250,000 scale charts are most suited to low level and local navigation. They contain all information below 9,500 ft, but do not contain complete upper airspace information above 9,500ft.
