No fly zone

Interested in chartering a scenic flight over the Augusta National Golf Club during this week's Masters Tournament? Good luck. Charter flight services throughout the city are telling people they simply are not flying this week. At all. No exceptions. Period.

This may sound crazy, but it's almost as if someone is paying these flight companies to keep their planes on the ground during the week. I mean, who could do that? Who would want to? Yeah, I know, sounds crazy.

The FAA can issue no-fly

The FAA can issue no-fly zones or a TFR that prohibit all aircraft from passing closely over a well-attended sporting event. Flights can be restricted from airspace within a three-mile radius of a event below an altitude of 3,000 feet. This measure can apply to all "major" sporting events.
