FAA approves Surf Air route to take planes over Bay
The new approach route approved for Surf Air (green line) will take planes over the Bay to the San Carlos Airport from near Moffett Field when conditions allow a visual-flight-rules (VFR) approach and flights into other airports don't interfere. The route that would continue to be used when visibility is bad is the straight red line, and the shaded area is currently used by Surf Air pilots in VFR conditions.
