Graphic Images in the ECQB
The graphic images used in the ECQB as annexes to questions come from a variety of sources and in most cases are easily available. These include Appendix 1 to Part SERA, Met charts and the Jeppesen General Student Route Manual (GSPRM).
To support students preparing for their exams, a small number of ECQB sample annexes that might not be easily accessed is provided for private study: please refer to here.
Aeronautical Charts and the ECQB
The aeronautical charts that are used with the latest ECQB release are taken from the GSPRM, as published by Jeppesen (2017)
