As of yesterday, pilots who fly VFR within 60 miles of the Washington, DC (DCA) VOR/DME must have completed the FAA’s airspace awareness training. The online training course is designed to familiarize pilots with the Washington, DC Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), which will be known as the DC Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) after February 17. It is important that pilots completing the course print and retain their certificate of completion so they can later verify that they have met the requirement. The FAA, TSA, NTSB or any federal, state or local law enforcement officer may ask to see the certificate of any pilot operating in the airspace.
