Due to the Homeland Security Department’s
decision to increase the national terrorism threat level to Orange
earlier this week, the FAA has issued a NOTAM establishing
larger-than-normal flight restrictions over this Sunday's Indy 500
race in Indianapolis, Indiana. The TFR will extend 7 n.m.
around and 10,000’ above the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It
will be in effect from 0900 local through 1800 local on May 25,
The NOTAM does not apply to the two public use airports,
including Indianapolis International (IND) and Eagle Creek (EYE).
Both airports will remain open for arrivals and departures as long
as, the aircraft is on a VFR or IFR flight plan, maintains two-way
communications with ATC, and squawks a discrete transponder
Medical Evacuation, Law Enforcement, DOD, Rescue/Recovery, and
Emergency Evacuation aircraft are also exempt fro the TFR, as long
as they squawk an ATC-assigned discrete beacon code and are in
contact with ATC.
While officials have stated that there is no information that a
specific threat for the event exists, increased measures are being
taken considering the concentrated number of spectators attending
The race is expected to bring well over 500,000 spectators to
Indianapolis for Sunday's event. Pilots are encouraged to check all
NOTAMs prior to flight.
