2013 Presidential Inauguration

Updated January 16, 2013

Presidential inaugurations historically generate a significant increase in air traffic headed to the Washington, DC area. As a result of this increased traffic, and due to the heightened security implications, there are a number of things that operators flying into and out of the Washington, DC metro area can expect:

  • Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs)
    Two TFRs have been issued which will restrict general aviation aircraft operations in the DC area for the Inauguration. One TFR, contained in NOTAM 3/2787, restricts operations in the DC Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) between 1800 local (2300z) on January 20, 2013 until 1300 local (1800z) on January 22, 2013. A second TFR, contained in NOTAM 3/0784, restricts operations in both the DC Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) and DC FRZ between 1000 local (1500z) on January 21, 2013 until 1800 local (2300z) on January 21, 2013.
  • Traffic Management Initiatives
    There will be no slot reservation program (STMP) associated with the 2013 Presidential Inauguration for any of the greater Washington, DC area airports.  The FAA’s strategy for the inaugural event is to "Monitor-Evaluate-Communicate-Implement". Peak demand will be addressed primarily with departure spacing (DSP) delays and miles-in-trail (MIT). Ground stops and ground delay programs may be used, but only as a last resort. All of the primary stakeholders will be linked by an open phone line, allowing the Command Center, Dulles and Baltimore Towers, Potomac Approach and the FBOs to communicate quickly and share important information.
  • Aircraft Parking Issues
    There will likely be parking challenges at the airports surrounding the DC area. FBO personnel will be working in close collaboration with FAA to help direct operators to parking. Operators are encouraged to contact their FBO of choice ahead of time in order to reserve parking and/or services. More
  • Departure Procedures
    NBAA Air Traffic Services has developed a departure card for Dulles International Airport that includes information on expected procedures to expedite aircraft departures following the inauguration.

NBAA recommends that operators planning to be in the DC metro area during this event be subscribed to NBAA Airspace Alerts. As NBAA staff gets additional information about the inauguration, updates will be distributed through NBAA Airspace Alerts.

Two TFRs have been issued which will restrict general aviation aircraft operations in the DC area for the Inauguration.

One TFR, contained in NOTAM 3/2787, restricts GA operations within the DC Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) between 1800 local (2300z) on January 20, 2013 until 1300 local (1800z) on January 22, 2013. The DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP) into and out of Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) will be available during this time, except between 1000 and 1800 local on January 21. Special flights or operations are not authorized anywhere within the FRZ and all flight waivers to operate within the FRZ are temporarily suspended during the time of this NOTAM, except waivers beginning with ELO, GOV, LEA, LFG or SPO.

A second TFR, contained in NOTAM 3/0784, will be active only on January 21, 2013. The Washington Special Flight Rules Area (DC SFRA) will create the outer ring and will allow IFR arrivals/departures to Washington Dulles (KIAD), Baltimore-Washington (KBWI) and Manassas (KHEF) during the TFR. The Washington Metropolitan Flight Restriction Zone (FRZ) constitutes the inner ring of the TFR, meaning there will be no access to Reagan National Airport (DCA), even under the DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP). All flight waivers to operate within the FRZ are suspended during this TFR, except waivers beginning with ELO, GOV or SPO.

The FAA, at the request of the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense, as part of the airspace security measures, will modify the DC SFRA and FRZ with additional flight restrictions during this event.

Washington DC SFRA Restrictions:

The DC SFRA is that area of airspace over the surface of the earth where the ready identification, location, and control of aircraft is required in the interests of national security. Specifically, the DC SFRA is that airspace, from the surface to but not including FL180, within a 30-mile radius of 385134N/0770211W or the DCA VOR/DME.

  1. Only authorized DOD and Law Enforcement/Air Ambulance operations are permitted within the SFRA with prior coordination and approval from the Air Security Operations Center (ASOC) at 866-598-9524.

Aircraft Parking Issues

As stated above, there will likely be an increase in traffic into the DC metro area airports.

Both FBOs at IAD have substantial ramp space available for managing drop-and-go flights and have brought in extra staff and equipment in order to expedite service for aircraft. Reservations are strongly suggested for RONs and prior notification is suggested for crews planning to drop-and-go, even if they are unsure of their exact arrival times.

Manassas Regional Airport (HEF) will be made available for IFR traffic during the hours of the TFR. This will allow for an additional off-loading of traffic from IAD.

Again, NBAA strongly recommends that aircraft operators, who are planning to go to the inaugural event, contact their FBO of choice to advise them of their arrival, to ensure that parking is available, and to receive advance instructions on where they can expect to park. Making reservations with an FBO will help to expedite both arrivals and departures. It will also be very important for operators to advise FBOs as to whether they will be “dropping and going” or remaining overnight.
