So many Centers

Recommended Posts

Are there really this many "Centers" in real life?  I crossed Lake Michigan last night and I probably got transferred to 4-5 or maybe even more Centers just from one side of the lake to the other!

Yes there are, in some areas.  In others, they are few and far between.  Depends on density of airports and controller workload.

Thanks Dave.  I thought once in the Chicago area, that was it until I exited the area.

If you go to TaxiMnt, Zoom into the Great Lakes area and click the ARTCC Tab, you can press the Show ARTCC Airspace and you'll see there are quite a few different Center boundaries around the Chicago area and some of them are quite small.
