Date and Time:
Saturday, January 15, 2022, starting at 10:00 Pacific Standard Time (11:00 MST; 12:00 CST; 13:00 EST; 08:00 HST; 09:00 AKST; 11:00 Arizona; 18:00 GMT)

Brief Description:

The San Francisco Bay Tour is one of the most exciting flights you can experience with stunning views of Silicon Valley, Stanford campus, Downtown San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, Crystal Springs, and the Pacific Coastline. The views are absolutely breathtaking!

But the challenge is to navigate the busy San Francisco Airspace and communicate with the fast-talking, no-nonsense ATC. With multiple transitions routes and IFR departures and arrivals at SFO International Airport, the interlocking “Bravo,” “Charlie,” and “Delta” airspace can be very intimidating.


Whether you are a 10,000 hour Airline Pilot or a newly minted Private Pilot, flying the San Francisco Bay Tour is a special treat! Join us for an in-depth discussion on how you can safely fly and enjoy the San Francisco Bay Tour while navigating one of America’s busiest airspace.


Key topics:

- How to request a Bay Tour with ATC

- Why you might want to use VFR flight following vs. going in “blind”

- How to plan and use the VFR transitions routes to your advantage

- What to expect from each VFR transition route

- How to perform a “Tower-to-Tower” transition

- What you can expect from ATC while flying over the San Francisco Bay
