New Publications for Pilots and Controllers
April 2014 saw the release of two new versions of important documents for pilots and controllers. Of particular interest is the 'Climb Via' phraseology, which is described in a forum post written by our ATM and in this NBAA pilot briefing. You can download the new AIM and 7110 from these links:
- Air Traffic Control Order 7110.65V, effective 04/03/2014
- Aeronautical Information Manual, dated 04/03/2014
Welcome to the Virtual Washington ARTCCHome of the first flight and the oldest continuously operating airport in the world, the airspace controlled by the Washington ARTCC is rich in history. With three major airports within 30 miles of the nation's capital, ZDC controllers handle some of the most complex airspace in the country.
From the Carolinas up to New Jersey, including the busy arrival streams from the southeast into the three New York airports and Philadelphia, overflights to and from Boston, and the equally busy traffic flows to Atlanta, there is always something interesting going on at the Washington ARTCC.
