The FAA this morning issued a notam permitting pilots to relocate their aircraft from Washington Executive/Hyde Field airport. Yesterday evening, the FAA closed the airport located near Washington, D.C., because of continued violations of the special security procedures that had allowed based aircraft to operate to and from the airport.
The FAA has opened three "windows" on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday to allow pilots to move their aircraft from Hyde to other airports.
The first escape window opens Saturday, May 18, from noon to 4 p.m. local time (1600 until 2000 UTC). Sunday, the window is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Monday from 5 a.m. to noon. All flights must comply with the special security procedures in effect for Hyde Field and the other Washington-area airports. Aircraft may only depart Hyde Field. No arrivals are permitted.
