The FAA has issued small temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) for president-elect Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain which will continue until Thursday, Nov. 6.
The first TFRs for each candidate will go into effect at 8 a.m. local on Nov. 4 in Chicago and Phoenix.
Three 2-nautical-mile-radius TFRs extending from the surface up to 2,999 feet agl near Chicago Midway International will be in effect from Nov. 4 through 6 for Obama.
McCain will have two TFRs near Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, which also will cover a 2-nm-radius area and extend up to 2,999 feet agl. The TFRs will be in effect from Nov. 4 through 6.
See AOPA’s Security Notams and TFRs Locator page for specific TFR times and locations.
AOPA strongly encourages pilots to obtain a briefing and check notams before every flight. TFR violators will be intercepted and forced to land.
The next stop is Putrajaya, Malaysia, on May 17 and 18 for the 2014 Red Bill Air Race World Championship, following an “electrifying” contest in Rovinj, Croatia.
