FAA To Implement Flight Plan Changes For DC FRZ

Includes All Flights In And Out Of The FRZ

Effective Thursday, March 29, 2018 at 0401z, the FAA will transfer responsibility for filing flight plans in the Washington D.C. Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) from Flight Service to the Flight Data Unit (FDU) located at the Washington Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZDC).

After the change, pilots will call 703-771-3476 to file FRZ flight plans and identify themselves using their assigned waiver number and/or confidential pilot identification number. This includes all flights in and out of the FRZ, Maryland Three Program (MD3) airports, and the general aviation operations to/from DCA (DASSP Program).

In addition, all pilots flying under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) within 60 nm of the DCA VOR/DME must complete special awareness training for the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. Please visit the FAA Safety website to learn more about requirements for flying in the DC FRZ.

Unless specifically authorized by TSA all flight operations are prohibited within the DC FRZ.

Flight plans are not accepted from the air or online. The pilot is required to continuously squawk their ATC-assigned transponder code and maintain two-way radio communication with ATC while operating in the DC FRZ. An operational Mode C transponder is required.

Flying IFR into any airport within the FRZ, the pilot must call the ZDC FDU prior to departure to file their IFR flight plan. If flying IFR out of a FRZ airport, the pilot must also call the ZDC FDU to file the IFR flight plan. Only the ZDC FDU can file an IFR flight plan to/from a FRZ airport. A pilot may call Leidos Flight Service separately for weather or NOTAM information.

If flying VFR into or out of a FRZ airport, the pilot must call the ZDC FDU to file the DC FRZ flight plan prior to departure. Separately, if a pilot desires to file an optional VFR flight plan with Flight Service, they must call Leidos Flight Service. A pilot may also choose to call Leidos Flight Service for weather or NOTAM information.
