Map of Location



The best way to come will be Metro since DCA is right on the Blue and Yellow Line. It is also on many MetroBus routes. Once you arrive at DCA, head to baggage claim, then exit onto the street. When exiting bag claim onto the street, you'll have two options.

1) Jump on a free blue & white Airport Shuttle bus that is labelled as heading towards "Economy Parking" or "Employee" (it is open to you too).  Both will take you towards General Aviation. Get off in front of the Signature Air terminal at shuttle bus stop #9. The hangar entrance is right there in front of you.

2) Walk. It's a little more than a half of a mile. After exiting bag claim onto the street, turn left to head south towards terminal A and General Aviaition. Pass terminal A. The next long hangar building that is just past Terminal A runs along Thomas Avenue.  At the end of that long building, on the left, is the event. Right next to Shuttle Bus Stop #9.



You can drive to Reagan National Airport. If you choose this option, park in the airport Economy Lot. You will have to pay $17 for your parking. Follow the airport's road signs to the South Airport Services / Economy Parking. The northwest end of that surface parking lot is directly next to the event at the Signature Aviation hangar. When you park, you can either take a shuttle bus to stop/shelter #9, or walk. Enter at the event entrance on the left/northwest side of the building next to shuttle bus stop/shelter #9.



You can use the Mount Vernon Bike Trail that runs alongside the George Washington Parkway to take you to Reagan National Airport. Once on airport property, follow signs to South Airport Services / Economy Parking. Entrance is at the end of the Signature Aviation terminal at bus stop/shelter #9.
