Navigraph offers a subscription for up-to-date airport charts, en route charts, and navigational databases to increase the realism of flight simulators such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D, and Laminar Research X-Plane. The data, sourced from Jeppesen is parsed into a format suitable for flight simulators and made available every 28 days according to the AIRAC cycle. There are different subscriptions available such as Navigraph FMS Data which contains an air navigation database with updates. For more professionalism, there is Navigraph Ultimate which contains both airport and route charts via Navigraph Charts software as well as navigational data via Navigraph FMS Data Manager.
The airport diagrams in Navigraph Charts are very useful when taxiing the aircraft from the gate to the runway and vice versa. The departure procedures in Navigraph Charts show how to fly from the runway to the airway leading you en route. There is also a route calculator which tells you which sequence of waypoints you need to pass in order to get to the arrival airport. There is even all the information regarding speed and altitude restrictions as well as radio frequencies and air navigational aids for you to prepare your flight for a final approach without hassle.
