Pilots flying between Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin, Texas, should be aware that the area surrounding P-49 will be expanding to a 30-nm radius over the upcoming holiday weekend. Pilots are cautioned to check notams before flight. The temporary flight restriction (TFR) will push out to a 30-nm radius below 18,000 feet beginning at 1205 local on Thursday, May 22, and continuing through 1445 local on Sunday, May 25.

During the effective times of the notam, practice instrument approaches are prohibited within the TFR.

All operations (except military, law enforcement, and medevac) are prohibited in the 0-10 nm airspace below 18,000 feet. In the 10-30 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 or egress only. No flight training, aerobatic, glider, parachute, hang gliding, ultralight, aerial application, or animal control operations are permitted.
