TFRs To Be Instituted By Tampa Area Airports For RNC

From General Aviation News: Airports in Tampa and surrounding areas are getting ready for increased traffic this August during the National Republican Circus.  Because the Republicans are a pretty rich bunch, they has lots o' airplanes begorrah.  And it is probably going to be a mess in the sky, as it will on the ground.  Stay home.  Be happy.  TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions; a type of Notices to Airmen (NOTAM)) will be instituted for flights within a 10mile radius of the circus, to include August 26th, the kick-off party in St. Pete and the circus itself which runs from August 27-30 in Downtown Tampa.  The FAA is yet to publish those TFRs though it is expected they will by late July.
