Congressional Flying Club: Rising from the DC SFRA Ashes

By AOPA.org

The Congressional Flying Club, formed in 1951 and located in Maryland’s Montgomery County Airpark, has managed to survive despite being located with the Washington, D.C., Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA).

Today, dealing with SFRA is standard operating procedure and not a big deal, just part of the process, said club president Piotr Kulczakowicz. “But when the D.C. [Air Defense Identification Zone]/SFRA was introduced, it was simply devastating. We had more than 70 members, a membership waiting list and five aircraft in the club’s fleet. We flew a solid 200-plus hours per airplane,” he said. “[The] D.C. SFRA made some pilots leave the club, completely leave aviation, or move to airfields outside the area.
