The Info List - New York TRACON

The New York Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) is located in Westbury, New York. New York TRACON, also known as N90, is a consolidated TRACON, meaning that a single location provides approach service for several large airports. The primary responsibility of the New York TRACON
is the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of arrival, departure, and en-route traffic. N90 is responsible for three major airports, all located within the same New York Class B airspace: John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, and LaGuardia Airport. Additionally, N90 is responsible for dozens of smaller but busy fields, including Long Island
Long Island
MacArthur Airport, Teterboro Airport, Tweed New Haven Regional Airport, and Republic Airport. N90 also controls the large number of VFR aircraft that fly through the New York Class B airspace every day. The New York TRACON
is a Level 12 facility and one of seven "Large TRACONs" currently existing throughout the United States. The others include the Atlanta Large TRACON
(A80), the Boston Consolidated TRACON (A90), the Potomac Consolidated TRACON
(PCT), the Southern California TRACON
(SCT), the Dallas/Fort Worth TRACON
(D10), and the Northern California TRACON
(NCT). Unlike smaller TRACONs which only utilize one radar, the New York TRACON
uses many different airport surveillance radar (ASR) sites, including:

Newark (EWR) White Plains (HPN) MacArthur (ISP) Kennedy (JFK) Stewart (SWF)

Area breakdown[edit] The New York TRACON
is divided into 5 areas. Sectors, along with their frequencies and radio sites, are given below. LaGuardia Area[edit] The LaGuardia area of the TRACON
controls LaGuardia Airport
LaGuardia Airport
and two of the higher-traffic volume satellites, Danbury Municipal Airport
Danbury Municipal Airport
and Westchester County Airport.

EMPYR (1D): 127.3 at EWR, backup at Mount Freedom HAARP (1V): 120.8 at LGA, backup at Douglaston LGA Departure (1L): 120.4 at LGA, backup at Douglaston LGA Final Vector (1F): 134.9 at JFK, backup at LGA NOBBI (1X): 126.4 at HPN NYACK (1Y): 120.55 at HPN Military (UHF): 257.65 at HPN and 263.0 at LGA

Kennedy Area[edit] The Kennedy area controls John F. Kennedy International Airport
John F. Kennedy International Airport
and its only major satellite, Republic Airport. This area controls many international flights from Europe because Kennedy is known in the aviation community as the "Gateway to America".[1]

CAMRN (2G): 128.125 at JFK, backup at Douglaston ILS Monitor 1 (2O): 119.1 at JFK ILS Monitor 2 (2T): 123.9 at JFK JFK Departure (2J): 135.9 at JFK, backup at Douglaston JFK Final Vector (2A): 132.4 at JFK JFK Satellite (2S): 118.4 at JFK ROBER (2K): 125.7 at JFK, backup at Douglaston Military (UHF): 269.0 at JFK

Islip area[edit] The Islip area controls all low altitude flights along Long Island
Long Island
in addition to Long Island
Long Island
MacArthur Airport.

Newark Area[edit] The Newark area of the TRACON
covers Newark Liberty International Airport along with the majority of the TRACON's satellite airports including Teterboro Airport, Morristown Municipal Airport, and Caldwell/Essex County Airport.

ARD (Yardley) (4P): 128.55 at EWR, backup at St. Francis EWR Departure (4N): 119.2 at EWR, backup at St. Francis EWR Final Vector 4 (4Q): 125.5 at EWR EWR Final Vector 22 (4M): 125.5 at EWR EWR Satellite (4E): 126.7 at EWR METRO (4H): 132.8 at SBJ MUGZY (4U): 127.6, EWR at backup at Mount Freedom North Arrival (4A): 120.15 at EWR ZEEBO (4S): 123.775 at SAX Military (UHF): 353.75 at EWR

Liberty Area[edit] The Liberty area's role is for high altitude departure control for all sectors. The Catskill position has responsibility for numerous satellites to the north of the NY TRACON
airspace. Three of the higher-traffic volume satellites are Stewart International Airport, Orange County Airport, and Dutchess County Airport.

Catskill (5H): 132.75 at SWF East (56): 126.8 at CMK, backup at POU "LIBBU" (59): 135.65 at SWF North (52): 118.175 at LGA, backup at JFK South (58): 124.75 at EWR, backup at Mount Freedom West (54): 120.85 at EWR, backup at SBJ Military (UHF): South and West, 353.75 at JFK; Catskill, 363.1 at HUO; North and East, 268.7 at SWF
