Access to DCA granted for Pentastar Aviation.


Pentastar Aviation on Friday said that its executive terminal operation at Oakland County International Airport (PTK) has been granted approval as a Gateway FBO to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) through the DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP).

Currently Pentastar is said to be the only executive terminal facility in the Metro Detroit area which has been approved for departures flying directly to DCA.

In addition, Pentastar Aviation Charter Inc said it is now a TSA approved operator for on-demand charter flights into DCA, departing from any DCA Access facility.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has restricted aircraft arrivals into DCA since 11 September 2001, to become a Gateway, an FBO has to meet the strict security requirements outlined by the TSA. As of 9 March 2012 only 102 general aviation entities across the US have been approved as DCA Gateway locations.

Pentastar Aviation has been a provider of business aviation services for nearly 50 years, it also provides aircraft maintenance, aircraft management services, aviation advisors, avionics design/installation/repair and aircraft charter through Pentastar Aviation Charter Inc.
