Dunno About Super Bowl Sunday Being a No-Fun Zone. But No-Fly Zone? You Betcha.

No doubt this will displease Shotgun Schutze, the noted model rocketeer and crop-duster who has crazy-big plans for Super Bowl Sunday. But via RotorNews we get a look at the Federal Aviation Administration's just-issued temporary flight restrictions issued for Dallas-Fort Worth during that weekend. Among the myriad do's and don't:

The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang gliding, balloon operations, tethered aerostats/balloons, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population control flight operations, banner towing operations, model aircraft operations, model rocketry, seaplane/amphibious water operations, and unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
Just as well. My seaplane's in the shop anyhow. Errant seamen.
