Jet route 223 and Victor airway 29

In US airspace, jet routes and victor airways are virtual "highways" in the sky, both made up of predefined, connecting radials off VORs.   Victor airways are low altitude airways, or airways meant to be used at or below 18,000 feet, that are found on the low altitude en route IFR charts while jet routes are airways meant to be used above 18,000 feet and are found on high altitude en route IFR charts.

Here's the relevant screenshot from a high altitude IFR chart showing J223 and CORDS:




And here is the low altitude chart showing V29 and SYR:

Oops, a minor correction:  SYR tower controllers might provide a second heading beyond runway heading (most times they simply let the IFR aircraft remain on the initial runway heading, though), but it's the departure control gang that handles that "join victor airways" stuff that you are thinking of.  Smiley

Ha, and I see now that my arrow was pointing to V35, not V29 that you had asked about.  You can see V29 as the other north/south airway to the right of V35 in that screenshot.   Sorry about that...

edit:  Note the bend in the V29 airway.  The nice thing about airways is that they are "shorthand" for clearance delivery controllers - simply giving V29 with a termination at SYR implies that the aircraft must take that lefthand jog at CORTA.

In Canada you might also hear other low-level airways.

They are rarely used nowadays, but are still legal/active. Most of them are between NDBs and not VORs:

Amber, Bravo, Golf, Romeo.

You can see them by going to my map at:

http://flightplan.blakecrosby.com/?zoom=3&lat=7474929.86902&lon=-10194865.08314

Click on the little blue plus on the top right hand corner of the map and select which airway you'd like to see.

There are Tango airways (only three of them) and are for RNAV equipped airplanes. They are simply airways between intersections.
