Airienteering with 13MIKE

by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller

AirLeg 12

1) Intercept and track outbound on the LAX VOR “090” radial

“That's Compton airport, isn't it? Look at that three letter designator for the airport on your Terminal Area chart. It's CPM. Now Compton is spelled C-O-M-P-T-O-N, where the M goes before the P. If I didn't know any better, I'd say the three letter designator should have been CMP! It's probably because some place else has those three letters, huh? Anyway, who cares?”

2) Proceed directly overhead the airport off your nose

3) Go to AirLeg 66
