SECURITY SESSIONS FOCAL POINT OF SUCCESSFUL CONVENTION

Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Fifty aircraft also were on Static Display at nearby Lakefront Airport.

FAA RETRACTS 2002 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES
The FAA has retracted the 2002 Olympics Winter Games NOTAM that was briefly available on the FAA web site and was handed out on paper at the NBAA Convention last week in New Orleans. When re-issued, the new NOTAM likely will reflect that no Special Traffic Management Program (STMP) will be utilized for airports within the 45-mile Olympic Ring TFR. However, the NOTAM will specify gateway airports that all Part 91/135 aircraft will have to transit enroute to any final destination within the 45-mile Olympic TFR. All aircraft will have to schedule a slot with U.S. Customs at a gateway airport to conduct a Part 108-like security check of aircraft, aircrew, and passengers at those airports. Also, no operations will be allowed unless the aircrews and aircraft have gone through the accreditation process of the Utah Olympic Public Safety Command.
FAA REMINDS PILOTS ABOUT CAMP DAVID TFR
The FAA has released NOTAM 1/2800, available for download from NBAA's Web site, reminding pilots about flight restrictions around Thurmont, MD, from November 30 to December 31, 2001.
