AIRWAY MAPS OF THE UNITED STATES
[For Airway Maps if the Philippine Islands, see page 55]

The Coast and Geodetic Survey is the distributing agency for all airway maps issued by the Department of Commerce and by the Air Corps of the United States Army.  Sectional Airway Maps sell for 40 cents each and Strip Airway Maps of the United States sell for 35 cents each.  In lots of 20 or more of an assortment, in one shipment to one address, however, the price is 25 cents per copy.  They are not returnable.  These maps may be purchased from the Director, Coast and Geodetic Survey, Washington, D. C., or from the following Field Stations: 808 Customhouse, Boston, Mass.; 741 Customhouse, New York, N. Y.; 423 Canal Street, New Orleans, La.; 510 Customhouse, San Francisco, Calif.; and 601 Federal Office Building, Seattle, Wash.  Strip Airway Maps of the Philippine Islands, which sell for 50 cents each, may be purchased from the Washington office and from the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Field Station, Manila, P. I.

Airway maps are designed for use in air navigation. They are lithographed in colors and show streams, roads, railroads, towns, and elevations.  Readily understood symbols are used to emphasize features of importance to air navigation, such as radio ranges, airports, auxiliary landing fields, airway beacons, lighthouses, high-tension lines, and compass roses.

These maps are drawn to scale of 1:500,000 (8 miles to the inch).  Strip Airway Maps cover an area 80 miles wide (about 10 inches in width) along established airways. Sectional Airway Maps (size about 20 by 42 inches) embrace 2° latitude by 6° longitude, with a 2-inch overlap on adjoining maps, and the 87 maps of this series when completed will cover the entire United States.

Upon request to the Director, Coast and Geodetic Survey, Washington, D. C., persons interested may have their names added to Mailing List No. 109-R, to receive prompt notice of the issuance of new maps and new editions thereof.
