Pack your flight bag, grab your flight planning gear, and get ready to fly in to AOPA's Fly-In and Open House on Saturday, June 2, at Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) in Frederick, Maryland. It's the perfect excuse to commit aviation.
We've relocated the VFR holding pattern to give you greater clearance from the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). You'll be holding just south of the Westminster VOR near Carroll County Regional Airport (DMW) in central Maryland. Be sure to make right-hand turns in the holding pattern because turning to the left could push you into the ADIZ. With hundreds of pilots expected to fly in, remember to be especially vigilant for traffic and to keep your radio communications terse and to a minimum. We will have a temporary air traffic control tower in operation that day.
For more information on a safe arrival, see these tips from the AOPA Air Safety Foundation.
