Once a year, ZOA holds a special fly-in to honor one of our former controllers who has moved on to a better place.


Alex Bower was a member of ZOA several years ago. He p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed away on January 31, 2007 at his home in San Francisco. The son of an American Airlines pilot, he earned his pilot's license and flew frequently until an injury permanently grounded him from flying solo. But nothing could ground his love for aviation. He was a long time member of VATSIM and ZOA, where he would fly into SFO every night from Tahiti as AAL1028. Alex also loved yachting and cycling, and everyone that knew him would say he was a fantastic person and a great friend.


In memory of Alex, we will be featuring the place he called home - San Francisco. We'll staff up SFO on Saturday, February 4, from 5pm to 8pm Pacific time (8-11pm Eastern, 0100-0400z). All traffic is welcome. We hope you will join us to honor a special person.
