FAA issues last-minute TFR for SeattleFAA issues last-minute TFR for Seattle

The FAA issued a very last-minute temporary flight restriction for New Year's Eve night in Seattle. The notam was published after 6 p.m. EST, less than six hours before the TFR was to go into effect. In the past, AOPA has argued that the FAA must give pilots adequate notice of flight restrictions—not doing so sets pilots up for unintentional violations.

The 1-nm-radius restricted area is centered on the Space Needle and extends up to 3,000 feet. It will be in effect from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. local.
