ANN's Daily Aero-Term (02.20.17): Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR)

Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) A TFR is a regulatory action issued by the FAA via the U.S. NOTAM System, under the authority of United States Code, Title 49. TFRs are issued within the sovereign airspace of the United States and its territories to restrict certain aircraft from operating within a defined area on a temporary basis to protect persons or property in the air or on the ground. While not all inclusive, TFRs may be issued for disaster or hazard situations such as: toxic gas leaks or spills, fumes from flammable agents, aircraft accident/incident sites, aviation or ground resources engaged in wildlife suppression, or aircraft relief activities following a disaster.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (02.20.17)

“One of the main uses for the UAS will be for high-risk situations such as someone barricaded in a home or building. The UAS will allow us to get a bird’s-eye view and see more of what’s going on without having to put any of our deputies in danger. The capability will also increase public safety for search and rescue operations. We will no longer have to lose valuable time waiting on helicopters or airplanes to locate missing subjects.”  Source: Sheriff Neil Godfrey, explaining that the Moore County Sheriff’s Office has purchased an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) equipped with an eye-in-the-sky camera for surveillance in a variety of law enforcement operations. Three deputies have been trained and have received their FAA and North Carolina certifications which are required for the deputies to fly and operate these types of aircraft legally in North Carolina.

Airborne 02.17.17: Privatization Fight Is ON, X-37B Stays Up, TSA Arrests

Also: HeliTrak PMA, Aviation’s Next Big Fight, New KC Airport, Verifly, CFM Orders, Purdue Aviation, P&W Expansion

Some of the aviation industry’s worst fears appear to have been confirmed after a recent White House meeting with the executives of many of the country's major airlines. President Donald Trump was reportedly "extraordinarily positive" about the concept of spinning off Air Traffic Control to a private, non-profit corporation. That was the assessment of A4A president and CEO Nick Calio, who attended the meeting. The corporation would likely have strong representation from the airlines, according to a report appearing on Fortune online. Calio said that in his view, Trump is "on track to do that" in reference to backing a bill that would separate ATC from the FAA. The word had gone out that the X-37B mini-shuttle would be landing at Kennedy Space Center on Tuesday, but it
