Navtech Charts Council Charter

We believe this customer group of Navtech Charts users will support us in becoming a more effective Charts provider to the aviation market and will also help assure that  Navtech's Charts products are the most functional for our customers. 


The purpose of the Navtech Charts Council is to provide Navtech with access to a forum of Navtech Charts power user customers in order:

  • For the Council to provide strategic, functional and other input to the Navtech's Charts product planning process, including the features of the specification, product roadmap, and changes/enhancements
  • To leverage customer expertise in areas important to the Navtech Charts product
  • To assist Navtech in gathering input for Navtech's on-going environmental and competitive analysis, and secure concurrence with Navtech's conclusions related to the Navtech Charts product
  • To build long-term and lasting relationships with Council members whose importance is vital to Navtech

The Group will meet quarterly going forward to discuss areas of interest to our Charts product suite and provide guidance to Navtech.
