Cutter Aviation Phoenix Sky Harbor Now DASSP Approved As DCA Gateway

Part Of An Initiative To Restore GA Activity At Reagan National Airport

TSA has granted approval to Cutter Aviation at Phoenix Sky Harbor Int’l Airport (KPHX) as an FBO gateway for approved general and corporate aviation flights to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (KDCA). The designation is part of the DASSP (DCA Access Standard Security Program) initiative to restore General Aviation access to the airport. Cutter Aviation PHX is one of less than 80 facilities nationwide to receive the DASSP approval from the TSA. The approval was granted on August 30, 2011, and is available for DCA Gateway operations effective immediately.

“We are pleased to now offer our customers the flexibility of travel directly to Washington D.C. through Reagan National Airport, which has been heavily restricted since September 11, 2001.” said Richard Campbell, Operations Manager for Cutter Aviation Phoenix Sky Harbor. “With the number of government contractors in the greater Phoenix area, this added convenience will aid in the growth of business within our area.”

Since September 11, 2001, aircraft arrivals into KDCA, only three miles from downtown Washington D.C., have been restricted by the TSA to include only select commercial airline flights in the interest of national security. The TSA began granting approval for select General and Corporate Aviation operations for arrival through DCA in 2006, but all operators and gateway FBO facilities must comply with strict security standards before being approved for operations into DCA.

Approved DASSP operators may now use Cutter Aviation Phoenix Sky Harbor as their departure point into KDCA.
