Potomac Airpark reopens
The Transportation Security Administration has allowed Potomac Airpark (VKX), one of the DC-3 airports close to Washington, D.C., and inside the Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) to reopen.
The TSA had closed the airport last month because the agency alleged that the airport operator was not complying with the security plan put into place for all of the DC-3 airports. The airport has since agreed to comply with the TSA-mandated procedures. See AOPA's issue brief and AOPA's ADIZ tools for more information about the ADIZ and how it affects airports and pilots.
