Dallas TFR set for Super Bowl SundayDallas TFR set for Super Bowl Sunday

A temporary flight restriction (TFR) will be in effect in the Dallas, Texas, area on Feb. 6, from 3:30 p.m. CST to 11:59 p.m. CST during Super Bowl XLV, to be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Pilots should be sure to review this notam about the TFR, and to check frequently for updates during its effective times. Pilots also should review this amendment of the TFR flight advisory.

The TFR layout is standard, with a 10-nautical-mile-radius no-fly zone and a 30-nm-radius outer ring. There will be procedures allowing aircraft arriving and departing airports specified in the flight advisory to squawk a designated "fringe" transponder code. Those pilots will not be required to file a flight plan or contact air traffic control.

The FAA expects extensive general aviation traffic in the Dallas area, and has posted this aviation information page on its website as a resource.

AOPA reminds pilots that they can enhance aviation security for the event by adopting the principles of AOPA's Airport Watch program: Lock up, and look out! For more tips about securing your airport, take AOPA’s General Aviation Security online course.
