COMM/NAV/WEATHER REMARKS: Lcl flow tfc management turbo jet arr Ronald Reagan Washington National Twr in conjunction with the Washington ARTCC, has implemented a metering plan designed to minimize low alt holding, reduce radar vectors and speeds rqrg the extn of flaps and to provide for an orderly flow of tfc to the final apch crs. Dependent upon the arpt acceptance rate, in–trail spacing btn successive arr may necessitate using speed adjustments prior to reaching the Washington Terminal Area. Descent, under most cond, will be from arr fixes established 30 to 36 miles from the rwy end. Advance ntc as to where to exp descent and when to exp base leg should be given. It is imperative that pilots ctl their descent at a uniform rate to preclude intermediate alt restrictions. Procedures are based on a near idle thrust, 300′ per mile descent in still air cond.
