FW: Kentucky Airspace Bulletin

I am pushing this through from the AOPA, the president is visiting.

==> ATTENTION PILOTS <==

FAA TO ESTABLISH TFR OVER HIGHLAND HEIGHTS ON FRIDAY AOPA is sending
this message to advise pilots in and near Highland Heights, Kentucky,
that the FAA has issued a notam restricting flight in the area during
President Bush's planned visit on Friday, May 19.

There will be a large 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight
restriction (TFR) centered on the CVG VOR's 089-degree radial at 8.2
miles, extending up to Flight Level 180. It will be in effect from 2:55
p.m. local until 7:15 p.m. local on Friday. Also, there will be multiple
smaller 10-nm-radius GA no-fly zones in effect within the larger TFR
during that timeframe. See AOPA Online for the full text of the notam
along with a graphical depiction (
http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/notams.html#6/7745 ).

The affected landing facilities are Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky
International (CVG), Cincinnati Municipal Airport Lunken Field (LUK),
Cincinnati-Blue Ash (ISZ), Clermont County (I69), Action Airpark (I38),
Cincinnati West (I67), Gene Snyder (K62), Butler County Regional (HAO),
and Lebanon-Warren County (I68).

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.
