If you're planning to fly anywhere in Maryland this weekend, CHECK NOTAMS. President Bush will be making two stops in the state on Saturday, Oct. 20. In response, the FAA has issued two 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) for Saturday that will cover much of the state and extend into Delaware and Virginia. When both TFRs are in effect, virtually half of Maryland's airspace will be restricted from the surface up to Flight Level 180. Read more about the TFRs on AOPA Online.
