The FEDIT intersection near Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Md., used to be located outside the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). When the ADIZ changed from its Mickey Mouse shape last year to a smaller 30-nautical-mile radius, it moved closer to Frederick and encompassed the waypoint.
AOPA has requested that FEDIT be moved outside the ADIZ.
Some pilots practicing the RNAV (GPS) Z approach for Runway 23 at Frederick in VFR conditions have violated the ADIZ because they didn’t asked permission to enter the airspace. The pilots may not have even known they were violating the ADIZ because it’s not depicted on the approach plate. AOPA is working on that issue too.
“Moving the FEDIT outside the ADIZ will solve the problem at Frederick,” said Heidi Williams, AOPA director of air traffic services. “But the ADIZ needs to be depicted on all charts with approaches that enter or come close to it.”
The FAA granted AOPA’s request to depict the ADIZ on impacted approach charts and will start with the April 10 charting cycle. Jeppesen will also depict the ADIZ on its charts.
