Pilots mount ADIZ education campaign at Leesburg

Local pilots in conjunction with the Leesburg Executive Airport Commission in Virginia have mounted a comprehensive campaign to address airspace violations in a special maneuvering area within the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). During a regular commission meeting on Feb. 4, a group of based pilots came up with a list of actions, which have now been completed.
