Ginger, Steve,

Although we do not know yet the exact dimensions of the Temporary Flight
Restriction (TFR) area, model aircraft and UAS operations may be impacted
by the President’s visit to Anchorage (and other places he visits in
Alaska) next week (Aug 31—Sept 2).

See the language in the NOTAM issued for Las Vegas this week:

Please help get the news to the folks who need to know.  Maybe Shelley
could speak on some of the TV news programs.

*Operating Restrictions and Requirements*

*Top* <http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_5_6907.html>

No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM
(except as described).

Except as specified below and/or unless authorized by ATC in consultation
with the air traffic security coordinator via the domestic events network

A. All aircraft operations within the 7/10 NMR area(s) listed above, known
as the inner core(s), are prohibited except for: Approved law enforcement,
military aircraft directly supporting the United States Secret Service
(USSS) and the office of the President of the United States, approved air
ambulance flights, and regularly scheduled commercial passenger and
all-cargo carriers operating under one of the following TSA-Approved
standard security programs/procedures: aircraft operator standard security
program (AOSSP), full all-cargo aircraft operator standard security program
(FACAOSSP), model security program (MSP), twelve five standard security
program (TFSSP) all cargo, or all-cargo international security procedure
(ACISP) and are arriving into and/or departing from 14 cfr part 139
airports. All emergency/life saving flight (medical/law
enforcement/firefighting) operations must coordinate with ATC prior to
their departure at 702-262-5955 to avoid potential delays.

B. For operations within the airspace between the 7/10 nmr and 30 nmr
area(s) listed above, known as the outer ring(s): All aircraft operating
within the outer ring(s) listed above are limited to aircraft arriving or
departing local airfields, and workload permitting, ATC may authorize
transit operations. Aircraft may not loiter. All aircraft must be on an
active IFR or VFR flight plan with a discrete code assigned by an air
traffic control (ATC) facility. Aircraft must be squawking the discrete
code prior to departure and at all times while in the TFR and must remain
in two-way radio communications with ATC.

C. The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight
training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider
operations, seaplane operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang
gliding, balloon operations, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population
control flight operations, banner towing operations, sightseeing
operations, maintenance test flights, model aircraft operations, model
rocketry, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and utility and pipeline survey

D. FAA recommends that all aircraft operators check notams frequently for
possible changes to this TFR prior to operations within this region
