PHASE 5: MISCELLANEOUS/ LOAs

A. Airspace A. Reference the LOAs for Los Angeles Center.

1. Area BRAVO.

Area BRAVO is released to Los Angeles Center,


14,000 FT MSL and above, at all times, except when military
operations require the use of the airspace.
FACSFAC shall notify Center Area Supervisor/
Controller-In-Charge at least ten minutes prior to recalling the
airspace.
FACSFAC shall release Area BRAVO back to Center
Area Supervisor/ Controller-In-Charge when the airspace is no longer
required.

2. Area CHARLIE. Surface and above. Delegated to FACSFAC at 2. Discuss the location of Area CHARLIE and the
all times. significance of this airspace.

3. Area DELTA 3. Reference the LOAs for Los Angeles Center.

Area DELTA is released to FACSFAC, 8,000 FT


MSL and below, at all times, except when Center operations require
the use of the airspace.
Center shall notify FACSFAC Watch Supervisor at
lease ten minutes prior to recalling airspace.
Center shall release Area DELTA back to FACSFAC
when the airspace is no longer required.

4. Area Foxtrot. 2,000 to 15,000 inclusive is released to SCT San 4. Instruct the trainee to turn to FACSFACINST
Diego area to facilitate sequencing Lindberg Field arrivals when the 3120.1 Appendix A-18.
ILS RWY 9 approach is in use.

5. CAE-1156. Upon request, FACSFAC will approve transit of 5. Reference LOAs for NAWC.

CAE1156 at specified altitudes/FL for specific time periods when it is


compatible with the military operations. When approved, IFR and
VFR traffic maybe authorized to transit the airspace by the center. A
FDIO generated flight progress strips shall constitute center request to
transit W291. FACSFAC shall call the appropriate Center sector no
later than ten minutes prior to a/c’s estimated boundary crossing time
if transit cannot be approved.

6. CAE-1177. The controlling facility shall coordinate all CAE 1177


crossings above 8,000 FT, within 55 DME of SXC VORTAC, and
5,500 FT and above, outside of 55 DME from SXC VORTAC, with
Los Angeles Center. This airspace is also used for air carrier transits
to and from Hawaii via the CAE 1156.

7. QDA (Quick Draw Area). Times and altitude are scheduled on a


real-time basis. If prior scheduled operations preclude utilization of 7. Discuss the difference between the QDA and the southern
the primary QDA, an alternate area of equal size (4NM X 10NM) QDA and the locations of both. What exercises are done in

Altitudes for this airspace are ocean bottom- 3,000 ft MSL different sections of SOAR.
(FACSFACSDINST 3550.1B).

B. Routes to Avoid Hot Areas B. Instruct the trainee to reference the


FACSFACSDINST 3120.1.
1. MZB247R- This radial allows aircraft to transit to Papa 6/7/8
when FLETA Hot and SHOBA are active/hot.

2. East Corridor- This corridor is located East of Papa 5. When Papa


5 is active or FLETA Hot is active aircraft can utilize this corridor to
transit to Papa areas 1/2/3/4 and the MISR ranges.

3. West Corridor- This section of airspace is located between Papa 6


and Papa 5. This allows aircraft to utilize this airspace to avoid
FLETA Hot and Papa 6 when transiting to areas south of Papa 6/7/8
and Papa 4.

C. Check-Fire / Resume C. Reference the FACSFACSDINST 3120.1


Appendix A-9, subparagraph 2.
The Radar Supervisor will instruct SOCC to “CHECK-FIRE” a hot
event whenever the event boundary has been violated. Check-fire
should be anticipated and made in enough time to be relayed to the
unit conducting the operation. “CANCEL CHECK-FIRE”
instruction shall be made when the non-participating unit has cleared
the hot area.

D. Letters of Agreements (LOA Binder) D. Discuss the LOA’s in depth with the trainee.

Refer to this LOA regarding the other procedures that need to


be applied.

Question: What is the controller’s job when


FACSFAC has a complete loss of Radar?
Answer: The Controller shall get the position of
all radar identified targets and then transfer the
control with the information to Los Angeles
ARTCC.
