President Obama's planned visit to Martha's Vineyard from August 19th until August 29th will require a Temporary Flight Restriction to be in effect.
MassDOT Aeronautics Division Administrator Chris Willenborg says the FAA has issued Temporary Flight Restrictions for aircraft operating within 30 nautical miles of Martha's Vineyard, the larger circle at left.
General aviation aircraft flying closer- within 10 nautical miles of Martha's Vineyard- must get a waiver 72 hours in advance of landing and taking off from the airport. The pilot and passengers must be screened at a Gateway airport. Cape Air and other commercial flights are not affected as passengers are screened at their respective airports. Read the advisory here.
