29DEC21 / 1700Z - Flash Flight: Washington River Visual @ KDCA


Have you heard of the KDCA River Visual? If you’re an aviation enthusiast it’s likely you have, and for this Flash Flight we’ll be flying it (weather permitting)! The famous approach to runway 19 takes you on a wiggly approach following key markers along the river including numerous bridges. You turn final very late at just a few hundred feet, making this approach one of the most fun into a commercial airport there is!

Make sure to follow information found on charts to help you with the approach. You can find the procedure here.

IFATC will provide service where able, so remember to always be in contact with them if they are open. This includes centre and departure frequencies.


This event will be streamed live on YouTube. You can watch it below!

I’m landing on Rwy 19 I don’t care if I have a 30kt tailwind I’m doing river visual.

Just did it and there is no wind when you get onto the final approach!

Good to know. Let’s hope it stays that way

I’ll try to come. Maybe I’ll have to divert for time reasons, let’s see, I hope I can do it as planned

Hopefully ATC doesnt redirect to another runway for landing and helps us get into the visual
