FAA Issues Flight Advisory for Obama’s Travels

FAA_630xPresident Barack Obama is planning to visit his hometown for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Some individuals have been criticizing his decision to leave town instead of going to the Tomb of the Unknown soldiers to honor veterans on the national holiday. Regardless, TSA and the FAA are working to ensure a safe and secure vacation.

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a flight advisory during the time period of President Obama’s visit to Chicago. Obama will be in the Chicago Metropolitan Area from May 27, 2010 to May 31, 2010.

The advisory puts restrictions on the airspace in and around the Chicago area to ensure a safe visit, while still allowing access to other airspace users during this time. Pilots who do not follow the advisory may be detained and suffer criminal charges.

The detailed advisory can be found on FAA’s website.
