FAA lifts flight restrictions over Valdez, Alaska

Feb. 10, 2004 - The FAA has lifted two temporary flight restrictions over Valdez, Alaska, which were imposed on Dec. 24, 2003. One was a 25-nm-radius TFR in which pilots were required to contact Juneau Flight Service Station before entering the restricted area. The other was a 1-nm-radius area within the 25-nm TFR, in which no flight was permitted without ATC authorization.

"AOPA has pressed the FAA to cancel these TFRs ever since the national threat level was reduced in mid-January," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "The FAA and TSA now agree that there is no longer a need to maintain them."

AOPA continues to pressure the FAA and security officials for relief from longstanding security-related TFRs across the country.
