    General This document describes the standard operating procedures for controlling at any of the positions within the New York Center airspace and the airports it serves. The procedures described herein compliment and/or supercede the Basic New York SOP. This document is ONLY for use by members and official visitors of the New York ARTCC operating on the VATSIM network. If you are not a member of VATSIM ZNY ARTCC (verified at VATUSA) or an official visiting controller of the VATSIM ZNY ARTCC and are using this document for any other network, you are using copyrighted material in an illegal manner. Action will be taken to remove redirecting websites, accounts, etc. if this document is being used in a manner other than on the VATSIM network.

  • Introduction a. Although every effort has been made to ensure these procedures are close to reality, it is realized that the source

    used is now dated, and even the FAA moves from time to time with regards to airspace and routings. However, given the amount of time it takes to train someone in just one area, it is generally understood that any changes made are relatively small, and therefore what is contained herein is pretty darn close to what is currently being used.

    b. Airspace delegation is all unconditional except where noted. c. The recommended range on maps assumes the radar is centered over the middle of the area covered. d. The mode C intruder limits show the airspace filters to be used when working the sector. They are defined as

    1,200’ either side of the lowest and highest altitude controlled by the sector, and are in hundreds of feet. e. To reduce clutter, airspace maps do not show airways, even though the majority of center airspace is modelled

    around airways. f. The fixes on the oceanic maps are the compulsory reporting fixes. g. A flow map shows the primary flow of traffic within the sector where most altitude changes occur. For the most

    part, through traffic, where no altitude changes occur, is not shown. h. Dashed lines on the flow maps show the approximate location of adjacent sector borders. The sectors listed are

    in altitude order, with the highest being at the top. It is up to the controller to determine which adjacent sector receives the traffic.

    i. Solid orange lines on the flow maps show the approximate location of adjacent approach control sectors. It is up to the controller to determine if traffic should be handed off to the listed approach control or a higher center sector.

    j. Due to the number of airways in the New York region, it is impossible to show every possible combination on the flow map. The controller should use common sense when determining if traffic needs to be at a different altitude before entering the next sector. If the airway is not listed, then the controller should look for a nearby airway to see if the destination airport is listed with an altitude adjustment.

    k. Not every TRACON is catered for from every direction, therefore use the following guide to determine altitudes and sectors that an aircraft will travel. • Plot 50 miles from the destination airport and plan to have the aircraft at 10,000’ by this point. • Working back along the aircraft’s route, assume 1,000’ for every 4 miles. This will give you the very latest

    point to start a descent. • Avoid sending aircraft through a sector for less than 20 miles. If necessary, descend the aircraft earlier so that

    it flies underneath the short-term sector. If there is no way to avoid this, then plan ahead and co-ordinate with the controller working the sector.

    l. Descending / climbing altitudes shown on the flow maps are ones issued by the previous controller and the aircraft should be within 1,500’ of the assigned altitude +/- 5 miles of the sector border (where a border applies).

    m. The altitudes given on the flow maps are the maximum for climbing aircraft. If the aircraft has filed for a lower cruise altitude, then use the cruise altitude and verify that the specified controller to handoff to has not changed due to airspace configuration.

    New York ARTCC – Center

  • ZNY Center Staffing Scheme General Notes: While we have more Low and High Centers available, ZNY will now be staffing a mix of Low and High Centers as primaries with a simplified altitude structure for ease of use as well as for logical traffic demand. The eight primary staffed centers are as follows (additional sectorization detailed in the larger Center SOP):

    High Altitude Centers (>FL240) Low Altitude Centers (A, B, C, & D sectors are SFC-FL240, E is SFC-FL230)
