DCA ADDS MORE AIRLINE FLIGHTS JAN. 2, NBAA WORKS FOR GA ACCESS
On January 2, Reagan National Airport (DCA) will begin Phase 3 of the reopening of the airport by adding another 14 destinations authorized for commercial airline service. NBAA continues to work to secure business aviation access to DCA and has proposed a detailed "Security Letter of Authorization" (SLOA) process to FAA officials. During periods of heightened security, SLOAs would give qualified general aviation operations access to the National Airspace System equivalent to that of commercial operations. On Monday, January 7, NBAA President Jack Olcott and FAA representatives will hold a briefing on the status of general aviation access to DCA.
