    Maybe we should try to track the record for TFR density. Saw this this morning. Americans love their sports....and TFRs.

    Looks almost like the Olympic rings...or Mickey Mouse (which is appropriately ironic).

    Even better is that the Flight Briefers don't even have a list of them (at least not the last time I asked . . . ). If I was flying to Houston today, how would I be able to find out about these? I live several states away and have no idea what schools and teams are there, much less their schedules!

    I'm guessing 20-30 jets would show up and let you know!

    Information after the fact creates so much more excitement!! But I much prefer those boring flights . . . .

    I'm guessing that the TRACON may have a game on in the break room and know about them so you can get busted. But, ain't no jets ever going to show up for a stadium TFR.

    I'm tempted to run for office. After I'm elected I'll declare that I will take a train for all domestic travel just so I can beat this record.

    They essentially did the same during campaign season and a bus route across the state. I think it was for Obama’s re-election.

    If I lived in one of those metro areas I would probably just quit flying.

    TFR’s are one of the biggest knee jerk legislations I’ve ever seen.

    You can barrel right through a stadium TFR if you're talking to ATC.

    That's nothing compared with the infamous 'caterpillar TFRs' for various 'bus trips'.

    A TFR, as with a locked door, only keeps good people out.

    Planning on dropping bombs apparently. I think that's the island they do it on.

    I have flown into a few presidential TFRs...



    ...as an air ambulance. I don't remember all that had to be done, something like had to be on an active IFR flight plan and call the FSS on the RCO and get permission, as long as the chief pilot remembered to call ahead of time and gave the SS, which was sitting in at the FSS, the secret password for the day.

    Stadium and Disney TFRs aren’t kneejerk legislation at all, although they love for people to think so. They’re in place to prevent banner towing over stadiums because the team owners and league can’t get a fee from them. They used safety as a reason to make it palatable.
