Updated Border TFR: 01.24.06 - 12.31.06

Editor's Note: The FAA can't seem to make up its mind on the latest TFR in place along the US-Mexico border. (The fact it is likely not so "temporary," however, seems to be certain.) This TFR supercedes the previous TFR, NOTAM FDC 6/0798, that was implemented Tuesday. We doubt this one will please the AOPA any more than the last one did.

Aero-News Quote Of The Day (01.25.06)

"[Since 9/11] there has been consistent grousing from the TSA about the numbers reported by the airlines. The TSA has always maintained that the airlines under reported, although there have never been any specific examples.
