Aeronautical chart.
A chart prepared and issued primarily for air navigation. The chart shows selected terrain, cultural, and hydrographic features and supplemental information required for air navigating, piloting, or planning air operations. It contains all or part of the following: latitude, longitude, topographical features, hazards and obstructions, navigation aids, air routes, designated airspaces, and airfields. Commonly used aeronautical charts are sectional aeronautical charts, VFR (visual flight rules) terminal area charts, world aeronautical charts, en route low-altitude charts, en route high-altitude charts, instrument approach charts, instrument departure procedure charts, and standard terminal arrival charts. The illustration shows an en route high-altitude chart at page 20.
