NBAA Air Traffic Management Specialists at the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center provide these impact statements for VIP TFRs, detailing the effects that these specific TFRs have on business and general aviation, including what airports and airspace might be affected. NBAA TFR impact statements reference public airports with at least one runway of at least 3000' in length.
NOTE: While this page is updated by NBAA staff as quickly as possible after Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) are issued or changed, operators are advised to verify that the TFR NOTAM numbers referenced below match the current TFR NOTAM numbers on the FAA’s Graphic TFR web page. This will ensure that operators are looking at the most current TFR data.

Special ATC procedures may be assigned prior to departure from a gateway airport. Pilots, crew and passengers must provide valid government-issued photo identification to the TSA at the gateway airport prior to departure.
On departure from a gateway airport, aircraft must maintain radio contact with ATC and continuously squawk an ATC-assigned discrete code. Intermediate stops while enroute are not authorized unless an emergency exists.
These NOTAMs refer to one or more 3 nautical mile TFRs. General aviation operations will be permitted inside these TFRs as long as the aircraft are on IFR flight plans and in communication with ATC. Additionally, operators at airports inside the TFRs should expect a short stoppage of arrivals (holding) and departures (no ground movement) during the actual arrival or departure of the VIP.
