I fly in the Bay Area. I sometimes like to fly over SF through the San Francisco Class B. If I am in contact with Norcal Approach and in their airspace, I can ask them for an exception and they can authorize it. But, I could also be talking to the tower, and could also be talking to Oakland Tower.
All three of the following agencies have authority over sections of airspace that overlap with the stadium TFRs at the Giants stadium (see image).
- Oakland tower (class C)
- San Francisco tower (core class B)
- Norcal approach (outside core class B)
My question is: which of these three agencies have the authority to grant me an exception to the stadium TFR?
