Chartviewer and Chart Updates

One update to the charts themselves, the IFR charts have been changed to use a better display format. This should make them look less 'fuzzy'. Only the Enroute Low have been processed, the Enroute High and Area charts will be updated next cycle.

The chart viewer has two new features:

1. Downloadable PDF. Click the link for portrait or landscape in the header bar to get the current view downloaded as a high quality PDF. This function includes the Gridded VFR views. It may take a minute or two for the system to create the PDF. These PDFs are the same format as the web view and thus distances and angles will be incorrect and unsuitable for navigation.

2. Quickzoom. Enter an identifier(Airport, Fix or Navaid) in the box and hit enter and go there quickly.
