Super Bowl airspace restrictions affect wide area
Whether you plan to be at the stadium, watch the big game on TV, or ignore it all together, airspace restrictions for Super Bowl XLIII could affect your plans.
If you will be flying anywhere in the Tampa, Fla., area this weekend, be sure to check notams before taking off. Traffic management initiatives extend from Jan. 29 through Feb. 2. On game day, Feb. 1, the FAA has established a 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restriction (TFR) that effectively shuts down general aviation from 4 p.m. through 11:59 p.m., affecting eight airports.
