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 (DEN):

All emergency/life saving flight (medical/law enforcement/firefighting) operations must coordinate with ATC prior to their departure at 702-262-5955<tel:702-262-5955> to avoid potential delays.
B.

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