Bookmark and Share

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.

Please note that, due to its proximity to the 7 nautical mile TFRs, certain operations at Newark International Airport (EWR) may not be available while this TFR is in effect.**

An 8 nautical mile TFR ring centered on the JFK VOR prohibits GA operations at Kennedy International (JFK) from 1845 local (2245z) until 2000 local (0000z/24) on May 23, 2018. ** Due to its close proximity to the TFR, some approaches and/or departures for LaGuardia (LGA) may not be available while this TFR is in effect.***

An outer TFR ring (similar to the traditional 30 nautical mile ring), consisting of the lateral limits of the New York Class B airspace, has additional restrictions between it and the 7 and 8 nautical mile areas from 1500 local (1900z) until 2000 local (0000z) on May 23, 2018.  There are two 3 nautical mile “cut-outs” that will allow arrivals and departures at Farmingdale (FRG) and Westchester (HPN) for the duration of the TFR – non-standard routings to and from these airports can be expected.

Vice Presidential TFR NOTAMs

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 the airport(s) listed above should expect a short stoppage of arrivals (holding) and departures (no ground movement) during the actual arrival or departure of the VIP.

New London, CT area - May 23, 2018 - View TFR Graphic

The airport directly impacted by this TFR is GON.

Other VIP TFR NOTAMs

Other VIP NOTAMs are those which fall under FAR Part 91.141, but are not related directly to the President or Vice-President. Examples of these would be the 2016 Papal visit to the US or the protection afforded to the President-elect and Vice-President-elect following the election. Normally, the restrictions associated with uncategorized TFRs very closely mimic those found within Vice-Presidential TFRs, but operators should always be sure to check the associated NOTAMs before operating into or near them.


There are no current Uncategorized TFRs.
