Potomac Airfield To Reopen?

The owner of Potomac Airfield says he hopes the airport will be reopened within two weeks after being closed for a month by the Transportation Security Administration. Owner David Wartofsky said the closure resulted from allegations that the required ground security wasn't in place. That prompted a visit from TSA inspectors who decided Potomac's paperwork wasn't in order and closed the field. Wartofsky said he's been in discussions with the TSA ever since and he's hopeful the airport will be reinspected and found in compliance by early December. Although many of the aircraft based at Potomac took advantage of TSA-approved access days to fly their airplanes out of the closed airport, Wartofsky said there are still aircraft there. The closure prompted protests from many aviation groups.
