The Department of Transportation has released a final rule for those seeking financial reimbursements related to the airspace shutdown around the nation's capital during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Operators at the five following landing facilities are eligible for the 9/11 reimbursements: Washington Executive/Hyde Field, College Park Airport, Potomac Airfield, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and the South Capitol Street Heliport. The application deadline for reimbursements is July 8. Read the document.
