FAA Honolulu Control Facility




The Federal Aviation Administration dedicated its state of the art Air Traffic Control facility on January 11, 2002 to support air traffic needs in the State of Hawaii and the National Airspace System (NAS).


The facility centralizes the Honolulu Center Radar Approach Control (CERAP), the Hawaii-Pacific System Manage Office (SMO), Honolulu Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) and the Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON).


The HCF enhances the FAA’s ability to provide for the safe, secure and efficient movement of air traffic, and ensures that NAS users are provided optimum levels of service and safety.  The combined services provided by the HCF include the control of en-route air traffic, arrivals, departures, and over-flights in and around the numerous airports of the Hawaiian Island chain, as well as to aircraft from the U.S. Mainland, Asia, South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia.


The complex includes an air traffic control operations room with 17 radar control positions; a Service Operations Center for the Pacific; an electronic equipment room; mechanical and electrical environmental area; administrative offices, building support warehouses and an employee cafeteria.  More than 200 FAA employees work in the facility.
