Pilots flying in the Mid-Atlantic area are cautioned that an expanded temporary flight restriction area (TFR) will be in effect around the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, beginning mid-week and continuing through the coming weekend.

The TFR will push out to a 10-nm radius below 18,000 feet beginning at 1530 local on Wednesday, March 26, and continuing through 1245 local on Sunday, March 30.

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.
