TFR around Camp David expands todayTFR around Camp David expands today

Click for larger image Pilots flying in the Mid-Atlantic area are cautioned that the temporary flight restriction area (TFR) around the presidential retreat at Camp David, Md., will be expanded this afternoon and continue through the weekend.

The TFR will push out to a 10-nm radius below 18,000 feet beginning at noon local on Friday, January 31, and continuing through 1330 local on Sunday, February 2.

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.
