ATC Trivia (otherwise known as totally useless knowledge)

How many states does each domestic ATC center cover - (Example both HNL and ANC centers cover just one state)

So what about the other 20 in the lower 48?

No cheating.




KZAB
KZAU
KZBW
KZDC
KZDV
KZFW
KZHU
KZID
KZJX
KZKC
KZLA
KZLC
KZMA
KZME
KZMP
KZNY
KZOA
KZOB
KZSE
KZTL




The table below indicates the following:

The number is the number of states and the 'x" is the number of times that answer is used.

Thus you will notice that the number of "x's" equals the number of ATC centers (20)'


1 – x

2 – x

4 – x x x x

5 – x x

6 – x x x x

7 – x

8 – x x x

9 – x x x x


Good Luck

Oh and if you can name each state in each center - well that will just prove that you are showing off.

This is tricky because I am not sure if we are talking about simply being over the state, or are airspace shelves included? The northeast, especially ZNY, gets tricky if shelves can be taken into account. My answer doesn't match the x's, but I'm confident...I think.

Hmm, when I was at ZHU, the airspace clipped Crestview FL... of course that was 10 years ago..
