About the Event

The National Celebration of GA Flyover will be broadcast live on AOPA’s YouTube channel with commentary from longtime AOPA Live This Week host Tom Haines and noted journalist Miles O’Brien. AOPA is encouraging watch parties at local airports and other gathering places.

This special event will take place over one of Washington, D.C.’s most restricted flight zones, Prohibited Area P-56, something that’s never been done with GA aircraft since September 11, 2001. Spectators on the ground and online will watch the aircraft fly above the Lincoln Memorial, down Independence Avenue, and past the Washington Monument. The Flyover is being closely coordinated with 11 interagency partners, including the FAA, Transportation Security Administration, Secret Service, and Capitol Police, and has the support of Congress.
