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 newest TBM does 330 knots and goes 1,730 nautical miles--and it's in production now.
You'll never guess what goes on inside this sleepy-looking, country home.
It is full of history, and ready for you to come browse.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
