Default Alternative to Jeppesen binders?

Are there any alternatives to the Jeppesen binders? Even their plastic

ones are
kinda pricey. Thanks...


Of course. The Jeppesen binder is the same size as a classic Day-Timer (desk
size), Day-Runner, Franklin, and many other seven ring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 binder
systems. The best hole puncher for one of these systems can be found he

http://www.officedepot.com/ddSKU.do?...o=_SK_5989 24

Very useful for putting checklists, flight plans, etc., in your binder.

The very cheapest way to go is with a 3-ring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 binder, as he

Acco–Wilson Jones® 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Ring Binder, 2" Ring, Black

carried by Office Depot for $6.98. The Jepp plates will fit just fine in
these binders. Hole punchers for these binders are a lot cheaper, too. You
can also save a ton of money just getting Jeppview on CD-ROM and printing
out only those plates that you need on regular paper, punching your own
holes, and putting them in the Acco binder. This is probably a lot cheaper
than using NOS charts, even.

Dude! Thanks for the quick reply.
My company just bought me the whole western half of the US (I'm a reserve
floater pilot, and will be going all over the place).
I shall check out the leads pronto!
Thank you again...

Or pick up a standard size hole punch with movable punches (uses
a screwdriver to loosen the punch). Set up for the 5.5 inch
paper. Costs about $10-12.

I find the 2 in to be much too large to use comfortably. I go with
a number of the 1 in 5.5x8.5 binders. I can put two states in
each one.

They're paying for the charts subscription but won't spring for the binders?
You sure you want to fly for a company like that? Makes you wonder what
sorts of corners they cut with maintenance.....
