UK 1:500,000 Charts

Does anyone know if/where these charts can be purchased without the laminate covering?

Thanks for any help

I think the charts over the last few years would fall apart if it wasn't for the laminate.

I do miss the Jeppessen VFR paper charts.

My solution is MemoryMap - 20 per chart, print out the sections I need on the office printer.

The normal suspects (Pooleys, Transair etc) certainly used to supply them laminated/unlaminated and folded/unfolded.
Do you not get these options anymore?

I may be wrong but I think that CAA/NATS stopped producing plain paper charts many years ago due to lack of sales.

Yes, many years ago I used the paper 1/4 mill charts.
Soft pencil worked a treat, easily lasted the 2 years till a new one was published.
Now have to use a plastic map and "permenant" marker pens.
