Chart provider shuts down citing FAA changes

New fees for digital chart products are on the horizon, but a California producer of wire-bound books of charts has already shut down because of a preliminary step by FAA, according to an report, which notes that Dan Johnston pulled the plug on because the FAA’s AeroNav program office cut the lead time on the release of digital charts from 17 days to one day prior to expiration. Meanwhile, AOPA officials continue meeting with FAA officials to preserve pilots’ access to aviation charts.
