You will typically want to use zoom levels 10-12 for VFR maps and level 9 or 10 for IFR maps.

In addition to linking to VFRMap.com, you can also display sections of our charts on your site:

<img src="http://vfrmap.com/api?req=map&type=sectc&lat=42.5&lon=-120.5&zoom=10&width=350&height=350">

'width' and 'height' should be between 256 and 768 pixels. Please see examples of embedded chart images below.
