Bookmark and Share

NBAA Air Traffic Management Specialists at the FAA Air Traffic Control System Command Center provide these impact statements for VIP TFRs, detailing the effects that these specific TFRs have 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.

NOTE: While this page is updated by NBAA staff as quickly as possible after Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) are issued or changed, operators are advised to verify that the TFR NOTAM numbers referenced below match the current TFR NOTAM numbers on the FAA’s Graphic TFR web page. This will ensure that operators are looking at the most current TFR data.

UN General Assembly - September 23-25, 2014

FDC NOTAMs 4/5781 (ZNY) and 4/5782 (ZBW) have been released for the NEW YORK, NY area on September 23-25, 2014, due to the United Nations General Assembly.  These NOTAMs replace 4/4700 and 4/4699 due to a small clarification in the TEB cut-out - there are no significant changes to the impact statement.

In summary, GA operations will be prohibited at the following airports during the specified times.

  • LGA - from 1200 local (1600z) on September 23, 2014 until 1430 local (1830z) on September 25, 2014.
  • JRA/JRB/6N5 - from 1200 local (1600z) on September 23, 2014 until 1430 local (1830z) on September 25, 2014, EXCEPT (with proper screening) during the following times: on September 23, 2014 from 1300 local (1700z) until 1900 local (2300z); on Septmber 24, 2014 from 0700 local (1100z) until 1900 local (2300z); on September 25, 2014 from 0700 local (1100z) until 1430 local (1830z)
  • JFK - from 1130 local (1530z) until 1230 local (1630z) on September 23, 2014 and again from 1215 local (1615z) until 1500 local (1900z) on September 25, 2014.   

Details:

An 8 nautical mile TFR centered on the JFK VOR/DME prohibits GA operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) from 1130 local (1530z) until 1230 local (1630z) on September 23, 2014 and again from 1215 local (1615z) until 1500 local (1900z) on September 25, 2014.   

A 7 nautical mile TFR centered on the LGA271005.0 prohibits GA operations at LaGuardia (LGA), and all downtown Manhattan Heliports (JRA/JRB/6N5) from 1200 local (1600z) on September 23, 2014 until 1430 local (1830z) on September 25, 2014.  ***Due to its proximity to the 7 nautical mile TFR, certain operations at Newark Intl (EWR) may not be available during the above times.***

During the 7 nautical mile TFR, helicopter operations arriving/departing the West 30th Street Heliport (JRA), the East 34th Street Heliport (6N5), the Downtown Manhattan-Wall Street Heliport (JRB), and VFR seaplane operations at 6N7, will be authorized on September 23, 2014 from 1300 local (1700z) until 1900 local (2300z), on September 24, 2014 from 0700 local (1100z) until 1900 local (2300z), and September 25, 2014 from 0700 local (1100z) until 1430 local (1830z), only provided that they obtain TSA security screening at one of the designated gateway airports - Republic Airport (FRG) or Linden Airport (LDJ) prior to operation in the TFR. TSA screening will be available at these locations on September 23, 2014 1100-1900 local, September 24, 2013 0700-1900 local, and September 25 0700-1400 local .

Please note that a cut-out for Teterboro Airport (TEB) will allow traffic to arrive and depart from the northwest (at or below 2000MSL) during the 7nm TFR.  However, due to its proximity to the 7NM TFR, certain operations at TEB may not be available during the TFR times.

An “outer ring” TFR, consisting of the lateral limits of the New York Class B airspace, has additional restrictions as specified in the NOTAM between the Class B boundary and the 7NM and 8NM areas from 1130 local (1530z) on September 23, 2014 until 1500 local (1900z) on September 25, 2014.  (The boundaries of the New York Class B airspace constitute what would normally be the outer 30NM TFR.)

A 3NM exclusion for aircraft at or below 2000 MSL around both Westchester County Airport (HPN) and Republic Airport (FRG) allow unrestricted arrivals and departures from these airports.
