    Does NYC have a terminal area chart, and does it have the Hudson corridor on it? I know, Im being lazy. But does it? and does anyone have one i can look at? they are hard to come by in AZ.

    Sure does, there is even a special page on the back of the Terminal with a very large scale of the corridor.
    I'll send you an outdated one if you'd like.

    Here is the terminal section, but not the special corridor page from www.skyvector.com

    You can view sectionals, topos, street maps at resolutions from 1:50,000 to 1:1,000,000. Attached is a portion of the New York Class B Exclusion, aka the Hudson Corridor.

    Skip, that looks like the helicopter chart for the NY TCA (whoops class Bravo). It is very detailed and what I used when I last flew the corridor no radio a couple of years back. Thanks again to whomever it was on the red board who suggested it - what great chart.

    I think you are right that it is the Helo Route Chart. And it was probably me on the Red Board recommending the HRC, I really find it valuable when doing the corridor.

    Also note that the HRC is not updated very often. The clip I posted has the World Trade Center drawn on it as an aid for visual identification. Very sad. I have verified that the HRC has not been updated since then, so the web site has the current chart.

    As I look over my left shoulder here at the office, I have a fine view of the "bathtub" (the basement of the WTC). The latest news is that the politicos have finally given an ultimatim to Larry Silverstein, the owner of the WTC lease, and Larry has accepted it. Theoretically, construction on Freedom Tower can now start. If I were a betting man, I'd bet against that - there are more political maneuvrings ahead, I think.

    The interesting part about that web site I listed, is that as you zoom in, you get the HRC and as you zoom out you get the TAC and Sectional views.

    Michael. I'll try to get my hands on a NY Helocopter chart it is much more detailed and enlarged. it is the best chart IMHO for flying the corridor or so I have heard.

    There's apparently a market for such. I have a video called Cleared to Land that is just a bunch of clips of different airplanes set to a music sound track, with an in-cockpit home video thrown in for good measure.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/6303141935/102-0006015-9496962?v=glance&n=404272

    About the only redeeming feature is the large variety of aircraft depicted.

    How bout one on tree avoidance at exclusive fly-in resorts? :)
