Pilots flying in the Mid-Atlantic area are cautioned that the upcoming holiday season also brings an expanded temporary flight restriction area (TFR) around the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md.
The TFR will push out to a 10-nm radius below 18,000 feet beginning at 0845 local on Saturday, December 21, and continuing through 0915 local on Thursday, December 26.
During that time, the notam prohibits practice instrument approaches within the TFR.
All operations (except military, law enforcement, and medevac) are prohibited in the 0-5 nm below 12,500 feet. In the 5-10 nm ring, aircraft must be on an active IFR or VFR flight plan with a discrete transponder code assigned by air traffic control and must maintain radio contact with ATC. All such flights must be for ingress, egress, or transit only. No flight training, aerobatic, glider, parachute, hang gliding, ultralight, aerial application, or animal control operations are permitted.
