Super Bowl LIII
January 29 – February 5, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia
Super Bowl LIII Flight Requirements for General Aviation and Drone Pilots
The FAA, stakeholders, and law enforcement partners have been planning and training for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta for months. Together we have developed a comprehensive plan to ensure safety and minimize air traffic delays associated with the increase in game-related general aviation flights that local airports will experience.
Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) will be in place for both general aviation pilots and drone pilots. Additional requirements will be in place for general aviation pilots who want to fly into or out of the Atlanta area in the days around the Super Bowl.
The airspace around Mercedes-Benz Stadium also will be a No Drone Zone on game day and during certain times in the days leading up to the game. View the No Drone Zone restrictions.
More than 1,100 additional general aviation aircraft are expected to fly in and out of the metro Atlanta area in a three-day period for Super Bowl LIII. General Aviation pilots who want to fly around Atlanta between Jan. 29 and Feb. 5, 2019, should check out this page for current information and for more information about the Special Air Traffic Procedures that will be in place for pilots who want to fly into and out of local airports.
Pilots who want to depart from airports near Mercedes-Benz Stadium while the game-day TFR is in effect must make reservations and follow certain protocols. Information about these requirements is available in the TFR and in the FAQs.
