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.

President of the United States (POTUS) TFR Near Palm Beach International Airport

Updated March 16, 2017
A President of the United States (POTUS) TFR for Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) and the surrounding area will be in effect any time President Donald Trump is at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, FL. The TFR will be activated via NOTAM. The POTUS TFR will be implemented because of the proximity of Mar-a-Lago to PBI, as the residence is 2.1 nautical miles away, and is in the final arrival path for Runway 28R.

Graphical TFRs Help Convey Airspace Restrictions

These graphics help illustrate the impact each VIP TFR has, particularly showing which airports are affected and when. Learn more in the November/December 2016 issue of Business Aviation Insider.

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.
