Los Angeles-Salt Lake Airway

This site provides historical information only, do not use for navigation purposes. 

This Section of the Route is confusing and will take some time to figure it out!

Changing the airway from Los Angeles-Salt Lake airway, Los Angeles-Las Vegas section to Los Angeles-Amarillo airway, Los Angeles-Las Vegas section and the re-numbering has left me very confused as to how to number this portion of my site.  I am thinking about it.
