  • Effect on Trooper 2

    • Increased workload

    • Distraction

    • Required to compensate for poor ATC services

DCA Tower

  • Failed to recognize apparent VFR-into-IMC situation

  • Did not coordinate Trooper 2 request for IFR clearance with PCT


Potomac tracon
Potomac TRACON

  • Initial pilot request – no response

  • Repeated pilot request – inappropriate instruction to contact DCA

  • No IFR clearance issued

  • Pilot given 5-hour-old weather for ADW


Potomac tracon continued
Potomac TRACON (continued)

  • Improper vectoring took Trooper 2 through final – pilot self-corrected

  • Use of Dulles radar site for ADW approach – poor coverage


Andrews tower
Andrews Tower

  • Airport Surveillance Radar approach request declined – numerous ADW controllers not current on the procedure

  • No other pilot indication of need for special assistance


Faa search and rescue support
FAA Search and Rescue Support

  • Potomac Approach and ADW Tower unable to provide specific last known position to search teams
