    FAA NOTAM 4/1687 TFR Mesquite, Nevada. FAA Designates Bundy Ranch a No-Fly Zone

    Meanwhile, down at the ranch, the lamestream media whistles past its graveyard.

    I have to disagree with the FAA's motive for establishing the TFR, short for Temporary Flight Restriction. The motive was not to suppress the free speech.

    As a pilot myself I'm familiar with TFRs. They are generally enacted encompassing the area of any major gathering of people or over Chicago when Obama is at home. It's standard practice, and it's more common than you'd think.

    If anyone's curious, here a link to a graphical TFR map of the US: http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr_map_ims/html/index.html

    As part of our flight briefing we make sure we'll be clear of any TFRs. The specifics for TFRs are published as FAA "NOTAMS" short for Notice to Airmen.

    As a pilot myself, the standards for creating a TFR over a major city with a major event going on involve FAR more people than were present at this "range war". They are also ridiculous in many instances as the supposed reason is "security" yet as a pilot I can maneuver my AC in a line that appears to bypass a given TFR for say a sporting event at a big stadium and then simply make a 90 degree turn and penetrate the TFR before any response can be initiated let alone successful.

    TFR's are generally no different than the "security theater" that is perpetrated against the American people every day by TSA agents at their "security" checkpoints.

    My credentials in the spirit of full disclosure: Private Pilot, single engine land. The majority of my training and total flight time was spent in the DC area with every training flight involving class B controlled airspace. And this was PRIOR to widespread GPS availability. TFR's were routine out of Andrews AFB and often came up on the spur of the moment when the President's schedule changed and we'd be either stuck on the tarmac or circling outside waiting for the restrictions to lift.

    We always got a kick out of how small the TFR's were and how easily a BG could negate them. Post 9/11 they haven't done much to make it any more effective.

    The TFR over the Bundy incident area is about CONTROL not safety. They simply didn't want any independent video record of their actions should something bad happen. Anything on the ground they could easily confiscate (if they had sufficient power), stuff that was airborne, not so much.
