Temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) have become more common in the post-9/11 heightened security environment, and often pop up on very short notice. Pilots should check notams before each flight by contacting flight service and/or using the FAA DUAT System program.

Pilots should obtain up-to-date information about TFRs from the FAA or flight service. Here are some quick links to official sources of TFR information.
AOPA provides TFR alert emails to members within a 250-nautical-mile radius. Pilots also may follow these alerts on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date on presidential TFRs across the country.
Pilot should also be aware of special-use airspace. In addition to information printed on aeronautical charts, some airspace require extra training and vigilance.
Brush up on your knowledge of airspace, including TFRs, download a kneeboard guide for intercept procedures, learn about requirements for flying through the outter ring of some TFRs, and see what it’s like to fly into the Washington, D.C., Flight Restricted Zone.
