SODPROPS is an acronym for Simultaneous opposite direction parallel runway operations, used as a method of coordinating the arrival and departure of aircraft on parallel runways in opposite directions. Controlling is all about finding the best traffic flow to maximize efficiency, and in some cases SODPROPS is the best and most efficient strategy to push tin.

You will see airports across the globe from KLAX, YSSY, URSS, ect. using SODPROPS. Watch on FlightRadar24 or if you’re lucky enough, in person, it’s a site to see in action.
