    North East Approach plates

    I downloaded the feb7 NE approach plates but when I view them they are the last cycle. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Rob has fixed the problem.
    The download has the current cycle.
    I wish we could open the .ACH files on our computers to check the download before going down to the airplane and finding out there is a problem.

    Load the zip file, open one of the files in it with Notepad. It is garbage but the first line has in clear text the cycle date for the plate.

    I have a MAC. I don't think it has Notepad but will look.
    Thanks,

    Any text reader should work. Most of the characters are unreadable but the first line has ASCII which even a Mac should support.
