Air Defense Identification Zone

April 16, 2007 - 6:49am

The FAA proposed today to make permanent the so-called temporary flight restrictions in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The restrictions and the current air defense identification zone (ADIZ) would be known as the National Defense Airspace. The Washington ADIZ and another over New York City were established in February 2002, ostensibly as temporary measures, and the New York City ADIZ has since been eliminated.

Thanks primarily to a campaign by AOPA, the FAA has received more than 16,000 comments, the vast majority mostly negative, to the agency's proposal to make permanent the temporary flight restrictions in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
