> CAMP DAVID TFR TO EXPAND THIS WEEKEND
> Pilots flying in the Mid-Atlantic area are cautioned that the temporary
> flight restriction (TFR) area centered on Prohibited Area P-40, the
> presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, will grow larger. The TFR
> will extend to a 10-nautical-mile-radius below 18,000 feet beginning
> at 4 p.m. local on Friday, September 16, and continuing through
> 12:30 p.m. local on Sunday, September 18.
>
> During that time, the notam prohibits practice instrument approaches
> within the TFR. All operations (except military, law enforcement, and
> air ambulance) are prohibited within 5 nm up to 17,999 feet. Between
> 5 nm and 10 nm, aircraft must be on an active IFR or VFR flight plan
> with a discrete transponder code assigned by air traffic control and
> must maintain radio contact with ATC. All such flights must be for
> ingress, egress, or transit only. No flight training, aerobatic,
> glider, parachute, hang gliding, ultralight, aerial application, or
> animal control operations are permitted. Also, all aircraft departing
> from private airports are required be on a heading away from the
> center of P-40. See the full text of the notam and a graphic
> ( http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/notams.html#5/8358 ).
>
> The affected landing facility is Mid Atlantic Soaring Center (W73).
>
> Because TFR airspace frequently changes, AOPA strongly encourages
> pilots to obtain a briefing and CHECK NOTAMS before every flight.
> TFR violators will be intercepted and forced to land.
