The FAA has already established three temporary flight restriction (TFR) areas for the New Year's holiday, and pilots should be aware that the agency may issue more around high-profile celebrations.

The TFR over the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., will require special attention for any pilot flying in that area on New Year's Day. The ceiling for the restricted space changes throughout the day. Pilots should use extreme care and pay very close attention to the notam when planning a flight.

Other TFRs have been established over the Statue of Liberty and midtown Manhattan for a period that covers the traditional midnight celebration of the New Year.
