The Visual Warning System (VWS) is designed to warn pilots who have entered the SFRA over the Washington, D.C. area without the authorization of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Traffic Control. VWS is a ground-based system that uses safety-tested low-level beams of alternating red and green lights to alert pilots that they are flying without approval in designated, restricted airspace. These visually conspicuous lights, distinct from other light signals currently used by FAA Air Traffic Control, are designed to provide a clear warning to pilots who enter the ADIZ without authorization and cannot be contacted on the radio by Air Traffic Control.
The FAA recommends that all VFR pilots flying within 100 nm of the DCA VOR/DME receive special awareness training for the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. Please visit the Aviation Learning Center at http://www.FAASafety.gov
