Tell your congressman or senator you support common sense reform to mitigate the burden of Presidential TFRs. You support legislation extending the “Maryland-Three” rules to any airport under a recurring Presidential TFRs.

Mid Atlantic Aviation Coalition (MAAC) and the New Jersey Aviation Association (NJAA) recently sent letters to the 270 Congressmen and Senators that comprise the General Aviation Caucus asking for this common sense reform.  We need YOUR help, make your voice heard and tell your representative and Senators your want access to your airplane when the President is in town.

Tell them:

“North Jersey is bearing a tremendous burden when the President visits his golf course. Private aviation and the airports that serve pilots are severely impaired by forced closure. I support legislation extending the ‘Maryland-Three’ rules to airports under a recurring Presidential TFR. Allow law-abiding/screened pilots access to their airplanes and airports using rules and program that already exists and has proven safe and effective. Support general aviation. That program has allowed the three DC area airports to continue operating and providing public air transportation. Thanks in advance for any help in adopting rational security practices.”

What does this program do?

It allows pilots who are screened to be given a PIN code and operate in and out of the inner ring of the TFR. 

This program is already successfully in place and has allowed College Park, Potomac Airfield and Hyde Field to continue to operate despite their proximity to the Capitol and White House.

This program already exits, nothing needs to be invented, and it affords protection for our nation’s leaders while allowing law-abiding pilots access to their aircraft and airports.
