Bay Area Cool Down: September 21


Come cool down in the friendly skies of Oakland ARTCC and take a dip in one of our great Bay Area Airports – KSFO, KOAK, KSJC. Enjoy that ocean breeze as you watch your OAT gauge!

New Sector File v17.1

A new Sector File has been published, the current version is v17.1. POF file remains the same.

Apart from the usual AIRAC updates, some new stuff has come across this time, courtesy our current ATM, Mark Dalforno.

  • Video Maps for San Francisco East/West Flow, each separately
  • Updated NORCAL MOSAIC MVA map as well as updated Radar ASR site MVA maps
  • Bay Area VFR map

The last one shows primary freeways and important landmarks, such as the location of the Sunken Ship in the East Bay, for better VFR handling. Thanks Mark for the excellent update.

Any Issues/Comments etc can be made in the forum.
