Jeppesen Charts

Tue Jan 11, 2005 6:04 pm

In viewing the Jeps' I noticed that some chart areas are very congested(Europe, Eastern Seaboard and Asia). But the most congested area looks like Japan. There are International arrival charts, local charts and area charts and all are confusing. Does this seem right or is it just me? What are other congested areas besides the aforementioned? SoCal perhaps?

Yes, you are indeed correct, Japan has some of the most congested airspace/charts.
Most airports have quite a few standard departues, and arrivals abound by the dozen, it seems.
Having said this, the air traffic controllers are quite good (if at times just a little hard to understand) and if you listen carefully, you will find that they use standard terminology that is very much like American controllers...as many of them have been trained in the USA.

Japan airspace on the charts looks congested because it is. There is
a strict pref route structure in the Japan FIR and if you do not follow
it they will bounce your flight plan. Any flight plans involving Japan
are a PIA but their system is quite efficient.

Europe is congested but efficient also. All flight plans in Eurocontol
airspace must be acked for the pref routes and flight levels.

I did not forget...I just misplaced the thought...

Nope. You need to pony up the $$$ to get them.  Smile
