    Regarding the Trump Tower TFR that extends over the hudson, when north bound, are we allowed to fly through the TFR as long as we're within the SFRA exclusion zone? Or are we supposed to fly towards oncoming traffic and go around it? Thanks.

    When you enter the SFRA you will be given a squak code. This TFR is less restrictive then the presidential TFR, your fine to operate normally in the SFRA, just listen to ATC and have a squak code.

    I thought between surface to 1,300 feet you don’t talk to ATC or have a squawk code

    Fly below 900' and fly slow. No one will even know you are there.

    Ok so it’s okay to hug the east side and go through that tfr then? And I read the thread. I’m not interested in the skyline route because I want to fly low

    You won’t go through the TFR, it ends right at the shoreline. Also, when he’s in town and there’s the standard 30/10nm presidential TFR, the Hudson River route is specifically excluded from the TFR.

    I use the Skyline route in the Bravo when flying the Hudson. I deviate towards the center of the river in the area of the TFR and let ATC know that I am going to be doing that prior to shifting westward. No issues in 3 flights so far.
