The FAA has released new rules governing amateur rocket flights, and the agency respond directly to AOPA’s concerns about temporary flight restrictions (TFRs).
In comments filed with the FAA last year, AOPA had asked the agency to clarify language in a proposed update of the rules to ensure that TFRs would not be used to segregate amateur rockets from the national airspace system. In its final rule the FAA specifically noted that the only change is in the timeline for providing information to air traffic control, and not to notam requirements or TFR procedures.
