AOPA Protests

AOPA says the FAA's plan to create a permanent ADIZ of 2,000 square miles -- nearly twice the size of Rhode Island -- is "operationally unworkable" and not clearly justified by the FAA. The FAA is currently seeking comments on its proposal. Meanwhile, for those who must navigate the region's nerve-wracking airspace (and are still waiting on proposed "mandatory training" from the FAA to see the light of day), AOPA has posted a helpful online briefing that explains how to do so without getting into trouble. It took us about 15 minutes to view the program, which covers all the fine points of ADIZ operations in lucid, easy-to-grasp detail. We think this program is must-see for anyone flying in the Washington area. AOPA hopes that by making an effort to eliminate incursions, GA can bolster its argument for eliminating the ADIZ entirely.
