Fleet Area Control & Surveillance Facility (FACSFAC) Jacksonville, FL


To ensure the most efficient use of the sea and airspace in selected Fleet Operating Areas the Navy established Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facilities. The Jacksonville, FL area includes all offshore surface and subsurface areas from Wilmington, NC to Daytona Beach, FL and east to 77 Deg Longitude. It includes all offshore airspace within Warning Areas W-132, W,133, W-134, W-157, W-158, W-159 and the northeastern portion of W-497, as well as adjoining airspace on a temporary basis.

Also included are Special Use Airspace over land associated with the Air-to-Ground targets in Restricted Areas R-2906, R-2907, and R-2910, and the Palatka One/Two, Gator One/Two, and Mayport Military Operating Areas (MOAs). FACSFACJAX also manages 15 low-level Military Training Routes (MTRs) in the southeast United States.

To give you a better idea of where the FACSFACJAX Offshore Warning Areas are located I've created a couple maps. The areas are broken up into two regions, the Northern Operations Area (north of Jacksonville, FL) and the Southeren Operations Area (south of Jacksonville, FL). If you click on the images below you will see a full size map of each region. When listening to FACSFACJAX frequencies you'll hear aircraft ask permission to work or to ACM in #-Yankee or #-Xray areas. With the maps below you'll have a better idea of exactly where the jets are playing.

Note 1: This freq note published in Gov't manual. I hard pilot on SEALORD freq say "push to" this freq. Then it was used along with 316.3 for FANG's ACM.
Note 2: Update 5/1/2013 These freqs were previously listed on my website and still confirmed in use, the only change was slight change to description which has been confired by reliable source.
Note 3: Update 5/1/2013 These are correct frequencies and descriptions for Pinecastle range, confirmed from a very reliable source
