Mexico WAC Charts

Published by INEGI - Mexico's National Institute of Statistics, Information & Geography. These World Aeronautical Charts (WAC) are for VFR flights to Mexico and contain topographical, airport and navaid information. Caribbean Sky Tours participated in the development of these charts and is an official distributor for INEGI.

These charts utilize the latest topographical, navaid and airport information available. VFR WAC charts do not show Terminal Control Areas (TCA) around large airports so it is a good idead to supplement them with an IFR Enroute Low Altitude chart which show TCA's. Mexico is divided into 12 regions and each region is named after a major city within the area covered by the chart. There are 2 regions printed on each chart for a total of 6 individual charts. The charts are updated every 4 years. SCALE 1:1,000,000.
