Aloha All,

4 Jan update: TFR terminated as POTUS departed for DC Sat evening.

Usual VIP flight restrictions in place for our holidays…

NOTAM FDC 4/8192 is in place and grounds RC aircraft operations along with pretty much everything else. (See Par D below)

D. 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.

In years past departure has been earlier than in the TFR, so we can watch an hope for opportunity 3-4 Jan.

Enjoy your holidays with family and friends!
