Operations Will Change Significantly in Baltimore-Washington D.C. Area
EAA President Tom
Poberezny and Washington Office Director Doug Macnair took part in a
teleconference Saturday with FAA Administrator Marion Blakey and TSA Chief
operating Officer Admiral Shkor and their staffs to discuss soon
to-be-implemented airspace restrictions and special flight procedures for
general aviation flight operations into, out of, through, or within the
National Capital Region (NCR).
The new airspace control measures
create an Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the airspace under
18,000 feet roughly based on the existing outer ring of Class B airspace
around Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland. This action, scheduled
to go into effect at 6 a.m. EST Monday, February 10, will affect
operations at many outlying airports in the area.
Pilots are strongly urged to seek out the latest
information regarding airspace restrictions. Look for more detailed
information, including maps, on the EAA website as soon they are
“It is imperative that EAA members and other pilots
operating in or near the newly expanded restricted areas check the NOTAMs
before take-off,” stressed Poberezny. “Superior airmanship is absolutely
required on the part of all general aviation.”
