Temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) are restrictions on an area of airspace due to some special event or activity. They are activated by a TFR NOTAM. The current Skyward Airspace Map only shows active TFRs. If you have already scheduled an operation, check the Skyward Airspace Map just before the operation to make sure that your flight area is not within an active TFR.
Most TFRs have effective dates spanning a few days at most. Some TFRs are permanent such as the one covering the Disney World Theme Park in Orlando, Florida.
FAA TFR Website: Filter by state to make it easy to find TFRs that may affect a planned operation. This TFR may affect a UAS flight scheduled to occur. Click on the TFR NOTAM number to obtain detailed information about the TFR.
In this example, Area C extends from the surface to 3000 feet MSL within a radius of 7 NM of the position shown. UAS flights are not allowed within this area.
The Skyward Airspace Map shows the area of the TFR that is below 500 feet above ground level. Even if you have a Civil COA which allows flight within the 5 NM of the airport, no UAS flights are allowed within an active TFR.
Temporary flight restrictions are shown as a red area when they are active. Don’t fly within an active temporary flight restriction. The Disney World Theme Park TFR is a permanent TFR.
Upcoming Flight Restrictions
The Skyward airspace map displays upcoming temporary flight restrictions so you can plan your future operations with greater confidence. Future TFRs are as a solid outlined gray area. When you click on the TFR, the sidebar will display the name, status, and start and end time in UTC.
To view upcoming TFRs in the airspace map, the red and grey airspaces must be checked in the legend.
