Pilot Reminder: Watch Out for Pop-up TFRs
September 24, 2010 — With the fall elections approaching in November, the likelihood of temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) being issued for VIP appearances on very short notice during the campaign season is on the rise. FAA and TSA officials are urging general aviation pilots to be ever vigilant and always aware of TFRs when they fly. EAA reminds pilots to check the NOTAMs before takeoff and make sure all intended flight paths steer well clear of all restricted airspace. You can check for TFRs on the EAA Flight Planner as well as during FAA Flight Service and DUAT/DUATS briefings.
