Both the Oakland ATCT and San Jose ATCT SOP’s have been updated on the website. They include a new format, new procedures, diagrams, and all you will need to control these airports. Please check them out in the SOP’s/LOA’s page.
We will be working on Sacramento and Reno next and hope to have that to you soon. Please direct any comments/questions/concerns to management[at]oakartcc.org
Greetings fellow ZOA controllers, we now have a date locked in for Calscream, so mark your calendars! We like to get the biggest turnout we can for this event so please make it if you can! No signups yet, they will be announced at a later date.
For controllers that are interested in the history, head over to calscream.com for some info on the previous events.
Updates to the ZOA En Route SOP, NORCAL Tracon SOP, and San Francisco ATCT have been published, as well as an update to the ZOA-NCT LOA.
The ZOA SOP has been changed to reflect the feedback you provided in the recent procedures survey, as well as a format change to reflect the new ZOA. If you have any questions please send them via Discord or email.
The NCT SOP has been consolidated back into a single document and the format was updated for consistency. We’re continuing to look at options for further updates to this SOP based on the feedback we recently received.
The SFO ATCT SOP has been reformatted and the NCT LOA has been consolidated into a single document.
The ZOA-NCT LOA updated a formatting and readability issue, as well as adding the new PIRAT STAR.
There is a new ZOA Class D Airport SOP available. This is a completely rewritten SOP with hundreds of changes. Before controlling any Class D airport, please read the new procedures.
This SOP can be found here.
