Since 1930, the standard paper navigation chart for VFR pilots has been the venerable sectional, originally produced by the Coast and Geodetic Survey, whose aviation department has since become the FAAs National Aeronautical Chart Office (NACO). The other side offers supporting information, including a graphical depiction of airspace classes, ATC frequencies, latitude and longitude of VFR checkpoints (useful to anyone flying with a GPS that lacks an aviation database), special-use airspace information, and airport diagrams for some of the busier airports in the airspace covered by the chart, along with hotel, car rental and restaurant information at uhose airports.
