1. How often do I get updates for my VFR Manual?

The revision service is referred to as a "monthly" update service. This is not quite true, since updates are distributed every 28 days which adds up to 14 updates a year.

5. Why is "XYZ" Airport not published in the VFR Manual?

In some cases, we are not able to publish charts of or by the local aeroclub or there simply is not enough verified information available to create charts.  For your support, available information is published in the Aerodrome Directory.
