Stadium TFRs on SkyVector

Pilots, Start Your Engines!!!

Beginning with the opening race of the 2014 NASCAR season at Daytona, SkyVector is proud to depict all 9/5151 TFRs - the so-called "Stadium TFR." 

We will monitor MLB, NFL, NCAA, NASCAR, and IndyCar schedules and depict TFRs for events that meet the qualifications for a TFR under FDC NOTAM 9/5151To make sure you have the TFR layer enabled, check your settings under the "Layers" control on the chart viewer.

A Stadium TFR is officially in effect one hour before the scheduled start of an event to one hour after its end. We will show the TFR on the chart 8 hours before it is effective, 9 hours before the start of the event. For event duration, we are using the published end times for baseball (usually 3 hours) and football (usually 3.5 hours), and 5 hours for races. We hope to one day be able to track when the event ended and expire the TFR accordingly - but until then, it will be based on these default durations. Please keep this in mind if you ever plan a flight that relies a stadium TFR expiring by a certain time.

This permanent "temporary" flight restriction rule has always been particularly unfair to pilots. Placing the burden on the pilot to track the schedules of hundreds of teams and thousands of events is onerous and unjust. While we abhor this rule, we undertake this task out of loyalty to the thousands of law abiding pilots who risk their certificates every time they fly.

At SkyVector, we know we're not the first to try to do this, but we hope to be the ones who do it best. Our goal is zero defects. If you ever catch us doing it wrong, please email info@skyvector.com immediately.

Thanks Guys!

Skyvector is the best!  I'm not a sports fan and did numerous photo flights in NYC and Philadelphia spending hours on the internet to try to ensure I wasn't going to bust a Statium TFR.  I realize and accept this is the PIC's job, but our 'friends' at TSA and the FAA sure made this a difficult task.  This addition to your TFRs will help ensure we don't miss one simply because we didn't even know there was a stadium in existance in that area.  I'll spead the word - Thanks again.

Love the 9/5151 TFRS

David, I LOVE the Stadium TFR plots!

 

I do have a request though - is it possible to suck the Post-Season MLB games into the system as well?

 

Also, do you guys take donations or you're compeltely funded by Ad Revenue? I use SkyVector before every single flight!

Are we missing something?

As far as I can tell, we've got the postseason games working correctly. Please let us know specifically if we have made a mistake.

Baseball Postseason

I thought I had seen a missing TFR for the Orioles postseason early in the pennant race, but I just looked and they have one for the Royals @ Baltimore tonight, so I guess it is working.

 

Appears I was incorrect. I'll keep an eye on it and see if I see anything else missing. For now I guess I was wrong.

 

Thanks for the great work!

Go O's!

Or Gow Ows! (as they say)

Brilliant

This is great. Have you thought about open sourcing the code you use to aggregate all the schedules so the entire community can benefit?

Ore perhaps generate an updated list that can be filtered, separate from the Skyvector map, similar to tfr.faa.gov.

Thank you, thank you, thank YOU!

Thanks Skyvector - I'm a new pilot as of November 2014 and it absolutely astounds me that the FAA expects pilots to dredge up TFR information from the darkest corners of commercial 3rd party websites... eg at&t park is in San Francisco with at&t stadium in Arlington. I guess that's typical of the way government and bureaucracies work though and they can get away with it because it would be very difficult to aportion blame because a pilot spent too much time scouring the web trying to hunt down ball-game and nascar websites and schedules, all the while being distracted by pop-ups and ads on a plethora of  websites instead of putting that time into weather briefings, preflights etc.. The FAA TFR map is basically a joke - click on the + to zoom-in to the next level and it zooms-in to 100%....have they never even used google maps or skyvector for that matter to see how a map zoom function is supposed to work? And if I type in "stadium tfr" on the FAA TFR page I'm basically led to the 500+ pages of NOTAMs for the month which just confirms I am to scour the various stadium and ticket scalper websites and it'll be my fault if that website doesn't clearly catalog all events. I digress - but thank you skyvector for performing yet another function that our wonderful government appears incapable of doing :-)

 

Thanks for the excellent work - right now, as best as I can tell, Skyvector is the most reliable source of TFR information out there. Duats.com used to have an "experimental" map - it isn't easy to find any more (if it's still there). My my - an experimental map after all these years and they're still getting all those tax dollars (how do I get a number like that?)...maybe they, or the FAA, should use a few of our dollars to purchase Skyvector's solution? :-))

 

From a new pilot...Thank you thank you thank you!

 

Next time I hear about a pilot violating a TFR, my first question will be "why didn't anyone tell him about skyvector?"
