TFRs

Postby dstclair » Wed May 30, 2018 12:19 pm

Inflight TFR's through ADSB is a good thing but about caused me to soil my pants today :wink:

I checked the weather including TFRs and the like before heading out for a flight around the patch this morning. There was/is a presidential TFR for tomorrow in the Dallas area which would affect me but today was good. Off I go!

Ten minutes into my flight a yellow ring shows up on my 795 indicating a TFR. WTF? Did Trump change his plans and I now have busted a presidential TFR? I half-way was looking for F16's to escort me down..... I pulled up the actual TFR and it is indeed for tomorrow. I'm guessing a 'yellow' ring means warning or not yet active, while a 'red' ring means active.

Whew!

I know what you mean! I’m flight instructing in Addison at US Sport Aircraft and the Dynon HDX had the same thing come up haha. Luckily you can touch on it and told us “upcoming.” Still nerve racking for sure! I’m in McKinney by the way.
