The FAA has imposed a 30-nautical-mile-radius TFR around
President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. FDC 3/3941 expands
P-49 to a 30 NMR below 18,000 feet beginning at 12:05 p.m. local
time on Thursday, May 22, and continuing through 2:45 p.m. local
time on Sunday, May 25.
The TFR prohibits all aircraft operations (except military, law
enforcement, and medevac) within the 0-10 NMR below 18,000 ft MSL.
Aircraft operating within the 10-30 NMR must be on an active IFR or
VFR flight plan with a discrete transponder code assigned by Air
Traffic Control (ATC) and must remain in two-way communications
with ATC. Flights are for ingress and egress only. Flight training,
practice instrument approaches, aerobatic, glider, parachute, hang
gliding, ultralight, aerial application, or animal control
operations are not authorized.
