    Unless your instructor's specifically told you to get 1:250k, you'll probably find a 1:500k chart more useful for navigation. I found 1:250k encouraged students to look for too much fine detail when you really want to do most navigation by larger features (until you get hooked onto the magenta line, of course ).



    Back to just bimbling in the TST.

    No longer instructing - just pontificating..

    You do need to get familiar with the 1:500k (half mill) charts because that is the scale you will have to use when you do the theory navigation exam.
    I think which scale you use for planning and in the air is a matter of personal preference - for microlight speeds really we need a scale about mid-way between those two.
    I like using 1:250k myself. The problem of "micro-navigation" that Joan mentions is a definite stage that we all go through during learning, so being aware of it will help.

    Sorry I can't help with your specific request. There's loads on e-bay
