Quiz: Can You Decipher An Aviation Chart?

An aviation VFR Sectional chart is chock-full of visual reference information that is important for every pilot. Runway lengths, obstacle avoidance, restricted airspace, plus much more all provide bits of data that will keep you informed and safe on every flight. Even with all that information right at your fingertips it can be difficult to decode the sometimes cryptic cartography.

Do you know these charts front and back, or will that overload of data leave you short on answers?
