Oakland AIFSS (OAK),
Oakland FSS/AFSS/AIFSS has been housed in five different buildings. The
FSS was located out on the tidal flats and had to be accessed by rowboat. That
was relocated, at least in part, to an area of Bay
Farm Island where it was
above the tide line. When Oakland developed the original airport, the FSS was
moved, this time into the airport terminal building where the FAA also located
original Oakland ARTCC and San Francisco Approach Control. Sometime in the
50's or early 70's the FSS was moved again to a new building about 1/4 mile from
old terminal building. In 1992 a new facility (shown above) was constructed on
airport to house the current AIFSS.
