En-route charts provide detailed information useful for instrument flight, including information on radionavigation aids (navaids) such as VORs and NDBs, navigational fixes (waypoints and intersections), standard airways, airport locations, minimum altitudes, and so on. Information not directly relevant to instrument navigation, such as visual landmarks and terrain features, is not included.
En-route charts are divided into high and low versions, with information on airways and navaids for high- and low-altitude flight, respectively. The division between low altitude and high altitude is usually defined as the altitude that marks transition to flight levels (in the United States, this is taken to be 18,000 feet MSL by convention).

IFR chart choices: Air charts is top value: despite electronic inroads, paper still rules. We like Air charts for en route use, while FAA/ AeroNav approach plates are easier to keep updated than Jepps.(COCKPIT ACCESORIES)(instrument flight rule)(Product/ service evaluation)
