Pilots flying in the Washington, D.C., area need to remember that the air defense identification zone (ADIZ) has changed shape.
Instead of a "Mickey Mouse" pattern around Washington and Baltimore, which was difficult to navigate and enforce, the ADIZ on August 30 became a 30-nautical-mile radius circle around the DCA VOR/DME. AOPA has been pushing for changes to the Washington ADIZ for years.
"The ADIZ changes are helpful, and they will benefit some pilots in the Washington, D.C., area," said Andy Cebula, AOPA executive vice president of government affairs. "Unfortunately, thousands remain under the burdensome requirements that have hamstrung the aviation community for nearly five years."
If you have operational comments or concerns, drop AOPA a line. For more information, see our ADIZ resources page.
