FAA Issues TFR Plans For Democratic Convention

Convention To be Held September 3-6 In Charlotte, NC

The FAA will be issuing Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR) in support of the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC. The FAA says the restrictions are designed to provide a safe and secure environment for the event.

The FAA classifies the airspace defined in this advisory and the published NOTAM as 'National Defense Airspace'. Pilots who do not adhere to the published procedures may be intercepted, detained, and interviewed by law enforcement/security personnel. Actions which can be taken against pilots include:

Administrative action, including civil penalties and the suspension or revocation of airmen certificates.
Criminal charges, including charges under Title 49 of the United States Code, Section 46307.
Use of deadly force against an airborne aircraft if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat.

The FAA advises that noncompliance with the airspace restrictions associated with this event may result in the use of force.

Current plans call for a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) to be centered at 351325N/0805058W and consist of an outer ring of between 30NM and 35NM and a 10NM inner core, from the surface up to but not including 18,000 FT MSL. This TFR will be in effect from approximately 1600 to 2359 local time from September 4-6. The size of the outer ring will vary, and additional inner 10NM rings may be added, based on United States Secret Service requirements. The TFR may also be extended until September 7, based on the presence of either the President or Vice President of the United States.

In addition, from September 4-6 a TFR will be centered at 351325N/0805058W and consist of a 3NM ring, from the surface up to but not including 5,000 FT MSL. This TFR will be in effect from approximately 0900-1600 local September 4-6.

Other short notice TFRs may be put in place over the Charlotte area from September 3-7. Pilots and aircraft operators should check NOTAMS before any flight in or near the Charlotte, NC area during this time frame.
