Aeronautical maps (also known as aviation charts or pilot maps), are specialized maps used by pilots for navigation during flight. They are comprised of many data layers that provide detailed information about airspace structure, navigational aids, airports, terrain features, obstructions, and other pertinent data crucial for safe flying. Over time, as populations have grown and technology has improved, these maps have become more complex. Older aviation maps such as this will likely appear very basic to any active pilot today. 

The verso features several keys and indexes as well as a map of the world on the Mercator projection divided by numbers for all other maps issued by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey

Condition: Map is in B+ condition, issued folded now flat with some faint toning to some folds. Colors are vivid and margins are full on all sides.
