FAA Announces Super Bowl Flight Restrictions

The FAA has released plans for general aviation flight restrictions, including a reservation program and temporary flight restriction (TFR), in South Florida in the days surrounding the Super Bowl. Designated as a National Security Special Event, Super Bowl LIV will be held on the evening of February 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. From 4 p.m. until 11:59 p.m. that day, the FAA will impose a TFR with a 10-nautical-mile inner core surrounding the stadium and a 30-nautical-mile outer ring.

Many business jet owners have legitimate reasons for remaining anonymous. But that isn’t easy, given how much aircraft information is on the public record.

A reservation program will be in effect from January 27 through February 4 for Miami International Airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Miami-Opa Locka Airport, Miami Executive Airport, and Boca Raton Airport. The FAA advises pilots to contact the FBO at their airports to obtain reservations and other information.

In addition, special air traffic procedures are planned to reduce delays at those airports, as well as at Palm Beach International Airport, Pompano Beach Airpark, and North Perry Airport. These procedures include specific arrival and departure route requirements, and air-traffic-management initiatives might include ground delays, airspace flow programs, reroutes, and altitude restrictions, among others.

The FAA has established a web page with more information about the restrictions and will post the TFR later this month.
