A student pilot from a nearby airport 23 nm outside the FRZ. I would LOVE to hear the specifics of this case.

  1. How far into the ADIZ did he penetrate?
  2. How many hours of training did the student have?
  3. Where was he intending to go?

Every pilot operating within 60nm of the DCA VOR must take and pass the Washington DC Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) course.

I bet his instructor was thrilled to hear the news… :smiling_imp:
