FW: AOPA ePilot -- Indiana Airspace Bulletin


-------------------------------------------------------------------
AOPA ePilot Special Airspace Bulletin March 22, 2006
-------------------------------------------------------------------

A special notice to AOPA members in the central Indiana area

==> ATTENTION PILOTS <==

FAA TO ESTABLISH TFR OVER INDIANAPOLIS ON FRIDAY AOPA is sending this
message to advise pilots in and near Indianapolis, Indiana, that the FAA
has issued a notam restricting flight in the area during President
Bush's planned visit on Friday, March 24.

There will be a large 30-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight
restriction (TFR) centered on the VHP VOR's 108-degree radial at
9.5 miles, extending up to Flight Level 180. It will be in effect from
12:55 p.m. local until 4:10 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#6/3622 ).

The affected landing facilities are Indianapolis Downtown Heliport
(8A4), Indianapolis International (IND), Eagle Creek Airpark (EYE),
Post-Air (7L8), Greenwood Municipal (HFY), Indianapolis Metropolitan
(UMP), Mount Comfort (MQJ), Hendricks County-Gordon Graham Field (2R2),
Indianapolis Executive (TYQ), Westfield (I72), Noblesville (I80), Boone
County (6I4), Shelbyville Municipal (GEZ), Pope Field (GFD), Franklin
Flying Field (3FK), Sheridan (5I4), Pam's Place (78I), and Putnam County
(4I7).

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.
