Completing the restoration of GA access at airports in the D.C. area continues to be a top priority for AOPA staff.
Based aircraft operations at College Park Airport, Washington Executive/Hyde Field, and Potomac Airfield were restored on February 14, with the promise that the procedures would be reviewed after 60 days with the goal of expanding access to transient operations. This has not occurred.
AOPA continues to pressure ranking government officials within the security community to restore transient operations at College Park and Potomac airports, along with the promised impending reopening of Hyde Field. As part of this initiative, senior AOPA management will be meeting with D.C.-area airport users at College Park Airport on Wednesday, June 12, at 1:30 p.m. to discuss actions being taken and future strategies to restore GA access in the D.C. area.
