You Watch the Game, We Will Watch the Sky
Notice Number: NOTC2790
You may already be aware, but here are a few reminders about the upcoming Super Bowl. There will be a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in place over Cowboys Stadium on February 6, 2011, during Super Bowl XLV. Be sure to check NOTAMs in this area prior to flying for all the TFR restrictions and boundaries. The latest NOTAM, TFR, and other important flight information can be found at http://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/.
Here are a few quick reminders: All aircraft entering or exiting the TFR must be on a discrete code assigned by an air traffic controller. Aircraft must be squawking the discrete code at all times while in the TFR. All aircraft operating in the TFR must remain in two-way radio communications with ATC at all times.
Pilots who do not adhere to the proper procedures may be intercepted by armed military fighter aircraft, and detained and interviewed by law enforcement and/or security personnel.
