I am playing Xplane11 and I am trying to find charts like this enter image description here

But for Europe or USA and shows every ILS approach, detalied maps etc. For europe I have found one site such as http://www.uvairlines.com/admin/resources/charts-europe.htm but it does not show every airport. Is there a site that shows for any airport ?

Note: I am looking for free sites, not sites like navigraph.

    $\begingroup$ I’m voting to close this question because resource location questions are off-topic as defined in the help center. Also, if you already know about paid services like Navigraph, why would these even exist if there was a free service out there? $\endgroup$ – Bianfable May 27 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ @Bianfable the commercial services exist because people will pay for convenience, not because the info can't be obtained for free. $\endgroup$ – pericynthion May 27 at 20:26
  • $\begingroup$ @Bianfable Due to currency I cannot pay that kind of money montly/annualy. Otherwise why wouldn't I use it. $\endgroup$ – Layla May 27 at 21:02

    $\begingroup$ They don't have to be current for simulation and video gaming. That ought to open up options. $\endgroup$ – Michael Hall May 28 at 1:12

The search term you're looking for is "instrument approach procedure" where sometimes "procedure" will be replaced with "chart" or "plate". Jeppesen provides these commercially for the world in a convenient standardized format for a hefty fee, but the aviation authority for each country also publishes their own versions as part of the ICAO-mandated Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP). In most cases these can be found for free online though it may take some digging.

For the US, the third-party (free) website airnav.com provides a convenient index for the FAA information - search for an airport from their homepage and scroll down for the links under "Instrument Procedures".

Picking a European country at random, Austria's charts are here. Generally you'll want to search for the country's AIP first, then dig through that to look for the instrument procedure charts

I flew myself from California to the UK and back (via Canada, Greenland, Iceland & the Faero Islands) without paying anything for charts this way - paid a lot for fuel though!
