Special Authorized General Aviation Flights to Washington Reagan National Airport

Immediately following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) was closed to general aviation aircraft because of its proximity to downtown Washington, D.C. Currently only commercial flights are permitted to land in this restricted airspace.

However, after conducting a thorough security review in partnership with other Departments of Homeland Security and Defense agencies, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) developed a security plan that balances the special

security needs of the airport with the economic importance of general aviation flights. The plan, called the DCA Access Standard Security Program, or DASSP, allows a total of 48 general aviation flights a day leaving from 20 designated "gateway airports". All of these flights must have an Aviation Security Officer (ASO) on board. ASO's are specially trained law enforcement officers who are authorized and credentialed by the TSA to fly on board each general aviation aircraft operating into or out of DCA. ISR has a full staff of ASO's ready to provide this critical service to expedite your direct private flight into Washington Reagan National Airport. Save valuable time and money by having a ISR ASO on board and avoid the inconvenience of having to utilize Washington Dulles or the other D.C. surrounding airports.
