The head of the airports authority for the Washington, D.C., region is calling on the federal government to relax stringent security rules for general aviation at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. "That's a very important part of our aviation infrastructure capacity at Reagan National -- we'd certainly like to see that returned," James Bennett told the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments last week. The post-9/11 security restrictions have seen general aviation flights at DCA reduced from 10 to 12 per hour down to just one or two per day.
