    Just a heads up (for you guys who may fly NYC) - legally or otherwise. :rolleyes:

    The FAA have issued a NOTAM & flight ban for 2nm within Trump Tower (understandable).

    The NFZ is up for TT and another for the nearby football game in NYC. Much of NYC is within 5 miles of airports so hobby fliers need to notify the tower and much more of it is class Bravo airspace anyways. If you fly in NYC be sure and do your homework.
    As a side note, all candidates had NFZ's at their homes, all others besides President elect Trump and VP Pence have ended.

    PS - this thread has been cleaned up, personal attacks and or political content is not welcome here. Thanks.
