I am very pleased (and relieved) to announced the long awaited Oakland Center resectorization has been finished and published. It is now effective, but I am sure there will be minor modifications over time. A big thank you goes out to the ZOA staff and their hard work on this project, as well as our various RW members who have generously allowed us to pick their brains.
There is a new ZOA SOP available in PDF format. You can download it if you wish, however the published version on the site is always the controlling document. The table of contents does link to the section of the document, so simply click on the section title and it will jump to it. I highly suggest you read the entire SOP if you are already center certified. Dominic is always available for help if you need it as well.
In addition to a new SOP there are new LOA’s for ZOA-NCT, ZLA, ZLA-SBA (this one is new-new), ZSE, and ZLC. Everything has been rewritten so it is important you read the entire document.
Last, but not least, the NCT SOP also got a small update. It is in the same PDF format as the ZOA SOP, and has been updated to removed references to the now decommissioned ECA VOR, among a few other small items. It’s a small update, but worth checking out.
If you have questions or suggestions please email the ZOA staff using the contact page.
