We have the pleasure to inform you that a new version of the GAM (Greek Aviation Map) charts covering the Athinai FIR, the Version V 3.1 ( 28/04/2016, based on the Amendment 02/2016 AIP Greece), is now available.
Since the GAM team of pilots started with the first VFR charts covering the Athinai FIR (V 1.0 – 08/11/2010), they never stop listening to pilots and users of the charts to improve and provide a better and more practical tool.
They will continue to update the charts each time that the AIP Greece will come up with significant changes, giving each VFR pilot the opportunity to have current aeronautical charts with the latest information on board, and they will continue to listen to every fellow pilot who comes up with ideas for improvement, remarks or error report.
We believe that a safe flight can only be done based on correct, precise and current information inside the aircraft .
