Hello,

I'm using SkyDemon with German DFS VFR AIP subscription. So far so good. But I'm missing the VFR Chapters such as GEN, ENR and SUP. In my understanding they should be in "My FHB's"  -> DFS German VFR AIP, but there are only the Chapters SUP and AD. Where are the other chapters?
It seems to me that in the SkyDemon Menu "National AIPs -> Germany" there are the IFR AIP but not the VFR AIP. E.g. there should be a chapter GEN 1-16, which is in my hardcopy of the German AIP VFR, but it is not in the National AIPs.

Many thanks for your help.
BR,

John_Boy

Hello, the product we license from Eisenschmidt for sale in SkyDemon consists of aerodrome information and SUPs. The ENR portions of the VFR AIP are not included.

Hi Tim,

it should be said, that the Skydemon-addon for the DFS VFR approach charts is also cheaper compared to the complete AIP VFR, which DFS offers. So the advantage of only having the aerodrome information and the SUP is the cheaper price....

But: For some of us it would be of interest to have access to the complete AIP VFR. Would it be a possible option to have this as addon ?
If yes, perhaps you can make a deal with DFS/Eisenschmidt.....


Regards,
Florian

Hi,

In addition to this reply, DFS and Eisenschmidt annouced that the AIP VFR will be changed completely to digital versions by end of 2020 (no more paper versions available and supported). So, I am pretty sure that most of the SD users in Germany would love to have the complete AIP VFR available in SD only.  (I would *g*)

https://www.eisenschmidt.aero/aip-vfr  (only available in German unfortunately)

Eisenschmidt confirm that if you want the other parts of their VFR AIP, you have to buy it from them.

The only parts that are licensed for inclusion in products like SkyDemon are the aerodrome charts and associated text (and SUPs).
