One Week To Go: New Arrival Procedures For AOPA Fly-In and Open House

ANN Will Be There, June 7th

The fun and information pilots are used to getting from AOPA's Fly-In and Open House will stay the same. Other aspects of the 13th annual event, on June 7, will change from previous years. Admission to the AOPA Fly-In and Open House and all seminars is free and open to everyone. In addition to the seminars, visitors can check out the AOPA Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes aircraft: a fully restored, 1940 Waco UPF-7 biplane. The Waco joins more than two dozen other aircraft on display on the AOPA ramp. In addition to the aircraft, more than 100 aviation vendors will display their wares.

There are a number of differences from past AOPA Fly-Ins, beginning with the arrival procedures. AOPA has worked with the FAA to develop procedures to ensure pilots stay clear of the area's flight restrictions. Pilots should become familiar with the boundaries of the Washington ADIZ and the Camp David Prohibited Area (P-40), as well as the arrival procedures in place for the event.

Other major changes include the need for arriving aircraft to squawk 1207 prior to reaching Mt. Airy. As in past years, a temporary control tower will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. the day of the event.

Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) has begun work on improvements to its runways and taxiways. Some of that construction may have an impact on airport operations during the event. Pilots should expect delays upon arrival and departure and during ground operations. Pilots are also advised to review all FDK notams and closely adhere to all air traffic control instructions and procedures.

AOPA staff will be on hand to assist in facilitating the flow of aircraft into and out of parking areas. Due to the large number of aircraft anticipated, pilots should plan on parking on the grass. Recent wet weather, coupled with the ongoing construction, has limited the number of available aircraft parking areas. Pilots may encounter delays as parking areas fill.

IFR arrivals and departures should expect significant delays; VFR operations are strongly encouraged.

AOPA has worked with the city to increase automobile parking available for those driving to the event. Attendees will be directed to available parking areas upon their arrival, with shuttle bus service provided from remote parking areas throughout the day.
