TFR Over Des Moines 14 September

President Obama will visit Des Moines, IA on Monday, 14 September.  Because of that, the TSA has imposed a temporary flight restriction (TFR).

 

You will note that you can not fly your model airplane or your UAS at all.  In case of doubt, the FAA will be happy to inform you that what the public calls a drone is either a model airplane or a UAS.

 

Farmers who get permission for crop scouting and other UAS activities will find they have to check NOTAMs (Notice To Airmen) every time or risk busting a TFR.
