The interim final rule from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) detailing all the hoops that general aviation will have to jump through to gain access to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) has yet to be officially published in the Federal Register, but that hasn’t dampened the NBAA’s jubilation. On Thursday, aviation and business leaders will gather at the airport to “welcome the restoration of business aviation to DCA and salute those in Congress and the Administration who have made the return of business aviation at the airport possible.” The event, titled “Celebrate General Aviation,” will be chaired by Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) and co-hosted by the Washington Airports Task Force, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, NBAA and Signature Flight Support. “This is our opportunity to say ’thank you’ to the leaders in Congress and the Administration who have worked to lift restrictions on general aviation nationwide–including at Reagan National–while sustaining a high standard of security,” NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen said. When the TSA announced the plan on May 25, it said “GA flights are expected to resume in approximately 90 days,” following publication of the interim final rule in the Federal Register.
