Tactical Operations Committee (TOC)



Tactical Operations Committee (TOC)established January 2013, provides an open avenue for FAA and those who operate in the National Airspace System (NAS) to work in partnership to identify and resolve operational issues affecting the efficiency of the NAS, and recommends resolutions to those issues and challenges.

The TOC has responded or is working on FAA taskings on the following issues:
  • Criteria and process for reducing legacy components of the NAS (VOR Minimum Operating Network, Cancellation of Instrument Flight Procedures)
  • Regional airspace issues (Caribbean, Northern California)
  • Improving existing guidance and processes that impact operations (20:1 Visual Surface Area, Airport Construction, Class B Airspace)
  • Assessing operational impacts from changes to the NAS (PBN Route Structure Concept of Operations, GPS Adjacent Band Compatibility)
