Look out for presidential TFRs this week

Presidential temporary flight restrictions

Pilots should be aware that President Bush is on the move this week, and with his visits come large 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restrictions (TFRs).

After visiting the Gulf Coast, the president traveled to his ranch in Crawford, Texas, on Tuesday, August 29, where he remained until Wednesday, August 30.

Later on Wednesday, the president went on a three-state swing, taking him to Little Rock, Arkansas; Nashville, Tennessee; and Salt Lake City.

After spending the night in Utah, the president is scheduled to head to Camp David, Maryland, on Thursday where he'll remain until Sunday, September 3.

To stay on top of TFRs as you plan your flying activities, download the recently improved AOPA Real-Time Flight Planner. Also, check out the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's online course, Know Before You Go, to help you stay out of trouble in today's complex airspace.
