Question What 1/4 mil chart for this airport.

I was wondering which chart Cosford airfield was on and wondered if there's a sight that tells you all the icao codes for a certain map. The Cosford code is egwc would it be central England and Wales or the west and South Wales. It's the 1/4 mil charts in the uk.

Cosford appears on 3 charts, South, East and Central so it will probably depend on where you are travelling from or to.

Chart 5 is due an update on 30/05/2013 which will be edition 10. This will show the changes to the Manchester CTR and Low Level Route. Keep this in mind when you buy one as it will not be 100% accurate.

So Cosford is in just the rights place as far as a buying a chart to other places goes?

Would I be better getting a 1/2 mil chart for flying further. As you can tell I'm still training.

Unless you're flying a helicopter or bimbling along at 500ft, you probably want the 1/2 mil anyway, not the 1/4 mil

I carry both. A 1/2 mil chart is great for longer distances but I always like a 1/4 mil as it details more power lines and roads as well as roundabouts and other details.

So now we come to the question who prefers which type of chart. I will not be flying above 10,000ft so what would you use.
