NASA will try again. Although they still aren't sure what caused the fuel sensor anomaly, the space shuttle Discovery is again scheduled for launch this morning. And with that comes a large, 40-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restriction area (TFR) with a 30-nm interior "no-fly" zone.
The TFR, which is centered on the MLB VOR/DME 004-degree radial at 30.6 miles, extends up to Flight Level 180, goes into effect at 1:33 a.m. local time July 26 and extends through 1:44 p.m. If the shuttle doesn't launch today, another notam is in place for a Wednesday launch. For more information, see AOPA Online for the full text of the notams and graphics. Also check AOPA's Real-Time Flight Planner for up-to-date graphics and information.

The Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
