Re: SFO Weather Delays

Delays due to weather have been greatly reduced since the introduction and improvement of .308 (Closely Spaced Parallel Runway) approaches. This change now allows aircraft to be separated by 1 mile between the leading aircraft for Runway 28L and the trailing aircraft for Runway 28R all the way down ...

Re: Record Year for SFO

The weather must have been better in SFO last year. This is not as important as it used to be. With new technology that allows for SOIA and CSPR (.308) approaches, fog and low ceilings do not create nearly the delays they did in the past. Coupled approaches will almost completely make weather relat...

It wouldn't necessarily be less safe. We know full well that the TSA holds no advantage over private security, for instance. Perhaps private ATC would do away with the asinine requirement of maximum hiring age of 29 for new ATC controllers. Sour grapes, yes, but I've never heard a legitimate valida...

Re: How do Air Traffic Controllers remember all callsigns and airline codes at big airports?

Simple. You memorize them... Or at least the ones that you see every single day which probably accounts for 95-99% of the callsigns you see. At SFO, every controller has probably 50-100 callsigns memorized for the airlines, fractionals, charter companies and various military flights that are most fr...

Re: Why no MD-11s allowed runway 1L at SFO?

Taxiway A goes behind the approach end of runway 01L. There is limited space and a blast fence is necessary to keep the aircraft that are taxiing to Rwy 01R via A from being blasted by the 01L departures. The blast fence had to be behind the EMAS bed and this put it so close to Taxiway A that aircra...

Perfectly safe and perfectly legal. That's what visual separation is all about. Some pilots are uncomfortable with it, some love it. As a controller at SFO, the closer they are to parallel the better because that gives us more of a hole to get the Rwy 01L/R departures out. This is our preferred appr...
