The FAA issues temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) whenever the president and vice president travel within the United States. NBAA Air Traffic Services specialists at the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC) compile information about the impact of these TFRs on business and general aviation, including what airports and airspace might be affected. NBAA TFR impact statements reference public airports with at least one runway of at least 3000' in length. Learn more about the air traffic impacts of Presidential TFRs in Wilmington, DE.

Note: Although NBAA staff updates this page as quickly as possible when TFRs are issued, operators should verify that the TFR NOTAM numbers referenced below match the current TFR NOTAM numbers on the FAA’s Graphic TFR web page to ensure they have the most up-to-date information.

Presidential TFR NOTAMs

These NOTAMs typically establish TFRs with an inner ring of 10 to 12 nautical miles to prohibit all general aviation operations below 18,000 feet.

There are no current 91.141 Presidential TFRs.

Vice Presidential TFR NOTAMs

These NOTAMs typically establish one or more 3 nautical mile TFRs. General aviation operations are permitted inside these TFRs, as long as the aircraft are on IFR flight plans and in communication with ATC. Operators should expect arrivals to be held and no ground movement at airports during the actual arrival or departure of the vice president.

There are no current 91.141 Vice-Presidential TFRs.


The FAA may issue other VIP NOTAMs under FAR Part 91.141 that are not related directly to the current president or vice-president (e.g. papal visits or president-elects). Typically these TFRs mimic the 3 nautical mile vice presidential TFRs, but operators should always review the associated NOTAMs before operating into or near them.

There are no current Uncategorized TFRs.
