Pilot 602----not always true. In Florida the express pack is around $30. The Naco is about $4 for the approach and another $4 for the enroute...which covers more area

Just be El Cheapo like the guy I saw at a pilot shop one day.....
He was so cheap, I saw him with a small notepad, leafing through the NOS plates and jotting down a bastardized plan/profile view line on his notepad, with altitudes/MDAs/DMEs hastily written in at the appropriate places.......
BUT.....the cheapest person I've EVER encountered was at McChord AFB, Washington. I'm in line at the Burger King, and a Air Force Major (C-141 pilot) is in front of me. He orders a kids meal of chicken tenders and asks for many BBQ sauce packs, then asks for more than the 3 he was given. I see him put the packs in his flight jacket pocket. Looking towards me, he notices me looking at him with a questioning look. He explains that by getting the free BBQ sauces, he doesn't have to buy a bottle of BBQ sauce for his chicken he's grilling that evening; that by ordering a kids meal, he can eat just enough food to fill him up, and the kids meal cup is small enough to keep in his flight jacket pocket so he can have free refills everytime he returns to the Burger King and never having to by a drink again until the cup wears out; and best of all, since it's his 2 year old daughter's birthday in a couple of days, all he's got to do is find an outdated Sectional chart to wrap the toy surprise in to give to her..........OMG!!!!!!!!!!! EL CHEAPO!!!!!!!!!!!! not to mention tacky.
(sorry to hijack the thread with cheap-person stories......)
