Is Sylmar Flight Park in or out of Los Angeles?
That is the question. What do you think is fact?

The SHGA property is within the city and county of Los Angeles.

I think Larry has it! The prize of honor probably will be yours!
Anyone contest his answer?
Today Joe Greblo told me some history that the parcel may not have been Los Angeles before the SHGA accepted the land parcel, but that Los Angeles grew in a land annexation process during the development of agreements with Santiago Estates; if so, then such still confirms the present moment for our 4.33 acres of the SHGA property. I have not yet a second verification of the city status of the 4.33 acre parcel before the said annexation.

If there are no objections, then, Jim T., or Chip? consider altering the SHGA web page
http://www.shga.com/flightpark.asp that says:
"Where is Sylmar Flight Park?
The Sylmar Flight Park (landing zone) is located north of Los Angeles"

Maybe insert "about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles" as is told on the different page for directions to our flight park.
"approximately 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles."
http://www.shga.com/directions.asp

And also, to polish the matter, on the front page of SHGA website,
consider changing "The Flight Park is located just outside of Los Angeles"
to something like "The Flight Park is located in the Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles."
