The FAA is concerned about infractions in a special maneuvering area within the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). If things don’t improve, the agency may take away the area.

Most of the maneuvering area infractions were caused by pilots based at Leesburg Executive Airport. Read more on AOPA Online.
