The President is Coming – Bay Area TFR on MondayNov 22 2013 · 0 comments · Events, News
The Bay Area is getting another visit from Air Force One on Monday.
Reid Hillview will be affected by a 32nm TFR centered on the SFO VOR, which means that from 10:15am PST to 3:59pm PST, flights will be restricted. Not prohibited, just restricted.
We will still be able to fly from the airport and come back, but flight plans will need to be filed and activated and a squawk code obtained BEFORE takeoff. Do remember to turn your transponder to ALT immediately after starting the engine. Do not wait till takeoff.
Patternwork is not allowed at RHV during this time.
More stringent restrictions apply closer to the center of the TFR, so don’t plan on any Bay Tours.

REMEMBER – listen to 121.5 at all times unless you are talking to ATC already.
