There are 3 SkyVector maps currently offered:

Before we get into what SkyVector HI and SkyVector LO are, we need to understand what airways or "air routes" are. Routes known as "highways of the skies", are fixed tracks or paths in the sky used during navigation and flight planning by pilots and dispatchers all over the world.
2. SkyVector Lo (Low Altitude Airways)
Map designed especially for flight crews and pilots. This option displays navigation waypoints and low-altitude flights (below 18,000 feet (5,500 m).
