Does the President still shut down airports?

Recommended Posts

The President is going to be in Daytona tomorrow, just down the road from Deland. Does anyone know if him being there will shut down jumping in Deland because of the no-fly rule and security reasons?

Yes, it will. He's supposed to be in Fort Lauderdale first though.

From AOPA:

AOPA ePilot Special Airspace Bulletin October 15, 2004
-------------------------------------------------------------------

A special notice to AOPA members in the Florida area


==> ATTENTION PILOTS <==

FAA TO ESTABLISH TFRs OVER FLORIDA FOR PRESIDENTIAL VISITS
AOPA is sending this message to advise pilots in and near Florida that
the FAA has begun issuing notams restricting flight in the state during
President Bush's planned visits on Saturday, October 16, Monday,
October 18, and Tuesday, October 19.

Based on AOPA's best information at this time from the FAA and White
House, the president will arrive in Sunrise/Fort Lauderdale sometime
Saturday then travel by bus to West Palm Beach. Based on previous
presidential bus tours, expect a 10-nautical-mile-radius general
aviation no-fly zone that will follow along with the bus and extend to
Flight Level 180. Also, expect 30-nm-mile-radius temporary flight
restrictions (TFRs) over the aforementioned cities. AOPA will post the
notams on AOPA Online ( http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/notams.html ) as
soon as possible after they are issued. Graphics will also be
available.

The president is expected to fly to Daytona Beach later on Saturday
where there will be a 30-nm-radius TFR centered on the OMN VOR's
159-degree radial at 7.9 miles. It will be in effect from 2:55 p.m.
until 5:30 p.m. local. Also, there will be a smaller 10-nm-radius
GA no-fly zone in effect within that timeframe. See AOPA Online for
the full text of the notam
( http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/notams.html#4/1056 ) along with a
graphic.

The affected landing facilities for Daytona Beach are Daytona Beach
International (DAB), Ormond Beach Municipal (OMN), New Smyrna Beach
Municipal (EVB), Deland Municipal-Sidney H. Taylor Field (DED), Massey
Ranch Airpark (X50), Bob Lee Flight Strip (1J6), Flagler County (X47),
Pierson Municipal (2J8), and Orlando Sanford International (SFB). Spruce
Creek Fly-In will also be affected.

On Monday, the president heads back to Florida. He is scheduled to be
in Boca Raton at 5:05 p.m. through 8:50 p.m. local. There will be a
30-nm-radius TFR centered on the FLL VOR's 360-degree radial at
9.9 miles. There will also be two smaller 10-nm-radius GA no-fly
zones in effect within that timeframe. See the notam
( http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/notams.html#4/1122 ).

The affected landing facilities for Boca Raton are Pompano Beach
Airpark (PMP), Fort Lauderdale Executive (FXE), Downtown Fort
Lauderdale Heliport (DT1), Boca Raton (BCT), Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood
International (FLL), North Perry (HWO), Opa Locka (OPF), Palm Beach
International (PBI), Miami Heliport (X48), Miami SPB (X44), Miami
International (MIA), Opa Locka West (X46), and Palm Beach County
Park (LNA).

The president will spend Monday night in St. Petersburg. He is slated
to visit New Port Richey and the Villages of Oriole on Tuesday.

Because TFR airspace frequently changes, AOPA strongly encourages
pilots to obtain a briefing and CHECK NOTAMS before every flight. TFR
violators will be intercepted and forced to land.

Yes, we in Ohio have been shut down for four days on beautiful Saturdays this year.

No way around it. You are down until FS says you can go.

Go to aopa.org

They have a scrolling TFR in red at the top of the screen. Just watch it scroll and then quickly click on your city or area.

Not confirmed yet, but Kerry will be in Xenia, Ohio tomorrow, Saturday, and we think we will be under a three mile tfr. :(

One more reason to hate him



That's funny, since if Kerry gets elected, he'll have the same TFR. You might say "no he won't" but very VERY rare is it a president has any say in his personal security.

Next time instead of lobbing hateful comments, open your eyes and understand the picture as a whole, it'll keep comments that have no bearing from being posted.

I wouldn't be surprised.

I went flying tonight, to re-establish "night currency," and when I was on the phone with Miami Flight Service to get the NOTAMs for Lantana, the guy reminded me that Saturday had TFRs all over the friggin' place (my words, not his) and I thanked him and said I was aware, and that was why I was flying on Friday!

It's fucked up, but yeah, every pilot's expected to be aware of the things. If you call 1-800-WX-BRIEF you can ask the flight service technician you speak with about TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions) related to the president's travels that might affect you.

Thanks for that link. I saw on tv that there is going to be a blitz on FL and he and Kerry are going to be visiting 12 cities before the election. :S

Andrea, see if you can sneak on board of AirForce One and make a jump



Yeah, I'll just smile and bat my eyelashes. It works for getting beer, it should work for getting on Air Force One too, right? :ph34r:

Tell them you just want to re-live that movie, what was the name of it, where Harrison Ford kicked some ass.

Get off my plane!

That movie rocked, Harrison was such a hunk.

We shut down today for him, I got to see a private plane that didnt know take off about 5 minutes before air force one flew in, and within a minute an F15 came in at warp speed and got on his ass, then ten minutes later my friend Teddy came in from atlanta in an otter and he said he got an escort from an irate f16 pilot. Said he heard the whole f15/182 talk and it wasn't too polite. The best day we have had in 6 months, you can see both coasts and there is no wind, and the first time I wanted to fun jump in forever and we have to sit on the ground. At least the day wasnt a total loss, we still have a bar at the dz.

I don't like Kerry either.

We're screwed either way this coming election.

Doesn't matter though, I'll stop talking politics now ;)

Yay!!! 6 more visits from one of the 4 clowns this year in the next 2 weeks. I think they might as well just get a house here how often they are in town.

Cool thing is I get to see AF1 and AF2 fly in from my office window. No idea what Kerry is on.
