What are the special procedures for approaching and departing Washington National airport, could someone describe them? When I flew from DCA to TPA we took of north and made a tight left turn at a high pitch attitude.

Boeingfanforlife:

the reason you took off and made a sharp left turn is that slightly to the right and in front of the climbout is restricted airspace for the white house and no flight is allowed what-so-ever. Therefore pilots have to turn left to avoid the area. Same with landings, that runway wont have straight in approaches, they do whats called a "river visual" where they fly down and follow the river.

When pilots take off on RWY 1, they fly on the Washington 328 degrees radial and follow the river because of Prohibited P56.
