Inauguration restrictions for Washington-area pilotsInauguration restrictions for Washington-area pilots

The inauguration of President-elect Bush next week will create a few complications for pilots in the Washington, D.C., area. With the flood of aircraft expected for the festivities, the FAA will require IFR slot reservations for Washington Dulles International (IAD), Manassas Regional (HEF), and Leesburg Executive (JYO) airports. Reservations will be required for IFR arrivals and departures from January 17 to January 22. The FAA will also implement temporary flight restrictions within a seven-mile radius of Reagan National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base. Sightseeing flights will be prohibited, but the FAA says pilots will still be able to access nearby airports.
