There will be a TFR centered on the SFO VOR while the President is there, then it moves up to center on the City of San Francisco, then it comes down.
As usual flights in the inner 10nm zone are prohibited, and you will be shot down if you penetrate that zone. In the outer 30nm zone, IFR flights are permitted, as are VFR flights with a previously filed and activated flight plan AND a discrete transponder cone obtained before takeoff.
The good news for us at Reid Hillview is that we are not covered by this TFR, although it starts just NW of us at the 680 freeway.
Study the details, they may interfere with your plans for Bay Tours or the like, and make sure you are listening to 121.5Mhz at all times when you are not in touch with ATC.
