Super Bowl airspace restrictions affect wide areaSuper Bowl airspace restrictions affect wide area

Superbowl TFRWhether you plan to be at the stadium, watch the big game on TV, or ignore it all together, airspace restrictions for Super Bowl XLIII could affect your plans.

If you will be flying anywhere in the Tampa, Fla., area this weekend, be sure to check notams before taking off. Traffic management initiatives extend from Jan. 29 through Feb. 2. On game day, Feb. 1, the FAA has established a 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restriction (TFR) that effectively shuts down general aviation from 4 p.m. through 11:59 p.m., affecting eight airports.

An FAA notice explaining the restrictions is available on the agency’s Web site, and you can get notam details through AOPA Online.
