    2. When appropriate, issue the following frequencies to VFR aircraft requiring radar services after departure:
      • Salt Lake City Approach (Jordan Sector) 128.6
  5. VFR Routing
    1. Not Applicable.

      4. VFR traffic join local pattern.
  6. VFR Operations
    1. VFR Departures
      1. Depart on-course.
      2. Handoff to departure control as soon as clear of any possible conflicts.
        • Salt Lake City Approach (Jordan Sector) 128.6
    2. VFR Arrivals
      1. Direct to airport.
