 Los Angeles Terminal Area Chart Changes

Recent Changes as well as Proposed Changes
being recommended by SCAUWG can be seen here!

The Los Angeles Terminal Area Chart (TAC)is updated every six months; in June and December of each year. SCAUWG maintains a standing committee that prepares and submits proposed changes to the FAA Charting Office. This committee is headed by Candace Robinson, President of the Long Beach Flying Club. Changes must be submitted to the FAA approximately two months before publication.  Ideas and suggestions for changes to the TAC chart can be submitted to the SCAUWG via e-mail to Candace Robinson (candy@lbflying.com).  Committee Reports are posted at the site noted above.

The current December 15, 2011 TAC release reflects extensive work by the committe.  Click on the link above and select "LATAC Chart Changes Edition 64" to see compare the changes between the June and December TACs.  

Helicopter pilots will note that there is also a new Los Angeles Helicopter chart.  The charting committee also played a significant contributing role in the creation of this new chart. 

It is the Committee's understanding that the FAA is currently working on combining the Los Angeles TAC and Helicopter charts for deployment at some future date.  The value of a combined chart cannot be understated in the complex Los Angeles megalopolis area.
