GA returned to DCA Oct. 18, sort of

GA returned to Reagan National Airport (DCA) Oct. 18 for the first time since Sept. 11, 2001. The first flight was operated by New World Jet Corp., the first Part 135 operator approved by the TSA for access into DCA. While GA is allowed access to DCA again, flying there requires operators to jump through a lot of hoops, including flying in from one of 12 “gateway” airports and having an armed security official on board the aircraft.
