Welcome Back To Level “Orange”


Washington, D.C.-area pilots can expect a return to using gateway airports for security checks prior to entering the ADIZ thanks to the increased terrorism alert announced Sunday. The FAA’s Greg Martin told AVweb he doesn’t anticipate any increased security measures outside the Washington area. Regardless, check the FAA’s TFR Web site and call 1-800-WX-BRIEF prior to flight — be sure to request all TFR/NOTAM information pertaining to or in the vicinity of your intended route.
