The Los Angeles Terminal
Area Chart (TAC)is updated every six months; in June and

must be submitted to the FAA approximately two months before

TAC chart can be submitted to the SCAUWG via e-mail to
Candace Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Committee
Reports are posted at the site noted above.
