I am a new pilot and I wonder, which charts do I have to have to fly IFR, from KLAX to KSFO, via route: ˝VTU5 RZS J501 BSR BSR2˝
do I need all, ventura five, san marcus and big sur, charts...? and which-departure or arrival or approach...
I would say yes. Because if you file that, and accept that as your clearance when it is given to you, ATC is goign to expect that not only do you have the charts and know what to do per what the chart says, but also to know how to fly that route.
So yes. What you will need is the VTU5 chart, and the BSR2 chart. Also, and I can't express this enough.. read the chart description
! That is just as important (if not more) than the actual chart itself. That gives you the complete details on what you need to do. So definitely be sure to have them, read them, and understand them before you file the route.
