No Bay Tours this weekend – the Fleet is in TownOct 05 2011
Starting Thursday Oct 6th and running throught Sunday Oct 9th, Fleet Week activities will cause Temporary Flight Restrictions over San Francisco. The TFR is a 5 mile circle centered on a spot somewhere between Alcatraz and the City.
The current NOTAM describes it in detail. Basically, if I am reading it correctly, the TFR is active Thursday 12noon till 6pm, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11 till 5pm. But NOTAMs have a way of changing so be sure you get a briefing before you fly.
