Default Old Sectionals, TACs, WACs, etc. free/donation request

I've got a few hundred old flight maps in the 1989-1997 era. There's Sectionals, TACs, WACs, some Hawaii and some Alaska maps. Some IFR low alt charts. And one Gulf Coast.

About 4 paper grocery bags full stacked.

All for cost of shipping and perhaps a token donation to VAF. Or pickup from me in Carmichael, CA

If you're picky on some select items let me know what you're looking for.

Most have OBS and the MM/YY written. Others have a small cutout of the sectional name. I think these came from an FBO who did this for old inventory. These came as part of a hangar/house purchase

I might keep one set of US so I can make a hangar wall map and draw out my travels.

Email preferred over PM.

I use old sectionals and aviation charts as wrapping paper of gifts. Kids love it. (Geeks too.)

It was much more fun when using a Durachart sectional.

Too bad they went away.

How much would shipping be to 31558? I would like to have them. Donation if we can work the shipping out is perfect.

I've had a few requests. I found I had anywhere from 1 to 8 copies of most sectionals, some L-n low IFR charts, some WACs, etc. I put one set together and it came to a stack of about 45 maps and about 6-7 inches tall, 6.5 lbs. I did a Media Mail estimate for one person CA to LA and it was about $6 but I can't pay postage/mail from home. It would be a trip to PO. If anyone wants such a stack or perhaps all of it, I'll ship in similar fashion.

I have a few sectionals from the 70's when my dad was flying. Honestly, I just like looking at them sometimes. They were much simpler with a lot less control zones. For instance, Charlotte was just a run of the mill 2 runway airport. Nothing special. Greensboro was the up and coming airport at the time. How things have changed.....

Glad I could assist with the laugh.

There's an old timer across from me at my airport that still uses them and I always ask him "what's that?" when he pulls out his sectionals. People still use them I guess.

Save a tree, buy a tablet.
