FAA TFR FIELD CLOSED FRI 5:15 pm - SAT 2:45 pm

THE FIELD WILL BE CLOSED DUE TO AN FAA MANDATED TFR (TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTION) AFFECTING ALL AIRCRAFT (INCLUDING RC MODELS) FROM FRIDAY AT 5:15 PM UNTIL SATURDAY AT 2:45 PM DUE TO "VIP MOVEMENT".  

LOCAL NEWS OUTLETS ARE REPORTING THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL BE IN TOWN.

THIS IS TYPICAL WHEN THE PRESIDENT VISITS.  THE FAA CASTS AN AREA FOR THE TFR OF ROUGHLY 30 MILES IN DIAMETER AROUND BOEING FIELD.  IT'S ACTUALLY MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT, BUT THE RESULT IS THE SAME FOR MARYMOOR RC FIELD.  ONLY AIRCRAFT THAT ARE FLYING UNDER AN INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES (IFR) FLIGHT PLAN WILL BE IN THE AIR.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE SOURCE INFORMATION, HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FAA NOTAM (NOTICE TO AIRMEN) .     NOTAM Number :FDC 4/0416

This is truly mandatory.  Thanks for your cooperation.
