Is it possible to display TFRs on the iPad app? I can see them online but can't figure out how to enable this feature in the iPad app itself. Thanks!

Thanks for your post! TFRs should always appear as shapes with a red outline on the map view in iFlightPlanner for iPad. In fact, we purposely didn't provide a setting to turn these off. If you zoom out to the full US and don't see them, please let us know and we can investigate further!

Hey John, I am seeing (actually not seeing) the same issue both on IFP for the iPad and IFP.com. See screenshots. one from IFP.com and the other from Skyvector over Atlanta

Hi Dave,

I have investigated and these appear to be separate issues. The original poster's issue had to do without no TFRs being displayed anywhere on the map.

In your case, can you confirm that you're seeing other TFRs on the map, just not this one over Atlanta? In addition, I don't see that TFR on SkyVector anymore, so it must have expired. Our TFR data comes directly from the official FAA NOTAM data feed.

John you are correct. I can see other TFR's nationally. The anomaly depicted in the images I sent was a TFR over the stadium in Atlanta for a football game and it expired Sunday. I will keep my eye out if it happens again and ping you with as much notice as possible.

Thanks for checking.

Hi Dave,

Stadium TFRs are not included in the FAA's NOTAM feed, so that is likely the reason why the TFR in question was not appearing on iFlightPlanner. NOTAM 4/3621 is an all-encompassing notice for "ANY STADIUM HAVING A SEATING CAPACITY OF 30,000 OR MORE PEOPLE WHERE EITHER A REGULAR OR POST SEASON MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, OR NCAA DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL GAME IS OCCURRING. THIS NOTAM ALSO APPLIES TO NASCAR SPRINT CUP, INDY CAR, AND CHAMP SERIES RACES EXCLUDING QUALIFYING AND PRE-RACE EVENTS."

We have done some investigation on sporting event schedule data feeds and the possibility of creating Stadium TFRs from that. Thanks again for the insight, we'll surely keep you posted!

Best,
Andy

I see TRF's on my FP.com screen but can't find any altitude information so I could possibly overfly if low enough. Is that available on this site?

Thanks for your post! To view TFR details, simply tap or click anywhere within the TFR, then tap or click "Airspace" in the pop up menu. Once you do so, all known airspace, including TFRs, AIR/SIGMETs, class and special use airspace, vertically above the lat/lon will be shown on the right side of the map. TFR details will be listed at the top.

Please let us know if we can help further!
