    Probably Not Much.
    I usually get my NA from the GPO Bookstore in Los Angeles. I like
    the Government edition the best.
    
    My understanding is that the British Edition is identical to the
    US edition, expect the price. HMNAO want big bucks or should I
    say big quid for their version. I have run into some Brits that
    buy US editions because of the price.
    
    There is also a cheaper "Commercial Edition" available, since the
    NAO's Almanac is for the most part, not copyrighted and is data is
    made freely available.
    
    I haven't gotten the 2005 edition, because I just haven't gotten
    around to ordering it yet.
    
    As for the "Air Almanac", if I was actually going to sea and
    doing real ( not arm chair ) navigation I would probably get
    it too. But just for casual use, it is quite expensive, about
    $65 ( maybe more now ), the last time I checked.
