My guess is we were all good little controllers. AIRAC 1807 is HERE! With this update come some minor changes to PHKO - Kona International. The rest of HCF and ZUA remain unchanged. As usual, if anyone has any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact me any time. [email protected]
Aloha HCF controllers! I wanted to take this opportunity and update you all on some changes taking place in the facility. First, know that HCF & ZUA are both updated to AIRAC 1806. You can find the downloads on our website. Now for the changes: Due to VATUSA directions, "GUM_CTR" is no longer to be used until further notice. C1s wishing to control Guam enroute should connect as APP and set multipe visibility points. All of ZUA will now be covered by two approach sectors. Guam North and Guam South. Each sector will have High and Low frequencies. Under unified conditions, Guam South Low will be the primary frequency. Please reference positions table 1.4 for exact frequencies and splits. Note that I along with the rest of the staff here at HCF have taken all steps necessary to try and stay as close to real-world configurations as possible. If anyone has any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time. I will do my best to have answers for you. I want to thank you all for your continued support of our facility, and I hope to see you on the scopes soon.

It's time for a much needed Guam Friday Night Ops event!
HCF will be staffing PGUM on July 6th, 2018, from 2359z to 0400z. We will be staffing PGUA and PGSN based on controller availability. A pilot brief will be available one week before the event.
We will be partially staffing PHNL (Hawaii) from 1630z until 1830z to provide a window for ATC services for anyone wanting to fly PHNL-PGUM.
Please update your scenery to ensure everyone has the correct taxiways! This is a real issue at PGUM where taxiway K is not fully extended in FSX default scenery. PLEASE UPDATE!
When flying out of PGUM, please advise Clearance Delivery on initial contact what scenery you are using. Please put it in your remarks as well.
