SECURITY PROVISIONS

Special security provisions are in effect for this event including (but not limited to) Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR), two-way communication and discrete transponder requirements. Specific procedures contained in this NOTAM may be revised or unavailable at the time of the event and access to some airports may be restricted. Pilots are encouraged to check NOTAMs frequently to verify they have the most current information.

Pilots should be prepared to provide documentation including personal identification, certificate number, aircraft ownership information, and a contact number.

TFR information is published by FDC NOTAM, normally 3 to 5 days prior to the event. TFR NOTAMs and graphics are available at the FAA TFR website: tfr.faa.gov

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT

During periods of heavy demand, pilots should anticipate Traffic Management initiatives including but not limited to, reroute, miles-in-trail, altitude restriction, ground stop, and ground delay programs.

When a Ground Delay Program (GDP) is in effect, aircraft must depart within 5 minutes of their assigned Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT). If unable, pilots must advise ATC and request a new EDCT assignment.

Traffic management initiatives are designed to provide equitable access to airports and airspace. To maintain program integrity and minimize delays, airborne changes of destination to area airports will not be accepted, except in emergencies.

Gate-Hold procedures may be implemented during heavy arrival/departure traffic periods. The ATIS will specify whether all (VFR and IFR) or only IFR aircraft are subject to ground delay at the ramp. Affected departures will be informed which frequency to contact for engine start/taxi clearance time.
EXAMPLE: "GATE HOLD PROCEDURES ARE IN EFFECT. ALL AIRCRAFT (or ALL IFR AIRCRAFT) CONTACT (ATC Position) ON (frequency) FOR ENGINE START TIME."
NOTE: Due to the high number of itinerant departures, aircraft may be held on the ramp to facilitate sequencing, expedite departures, and comply with traffic management restrictions.

FLIGHT PLANS

File flight plans at least 6 hours, but not more than 22 hours, prior to proposed time of departure. This is required to ensure Traffic Management Initiatives reflect authentic demand. Should TMI be necessary, filing early may minimize your assigned delay. Duplicate flight plans (same time/call sign) to the same airport or multiple airport destinations are subject to removal from the system and may result in increased delays.

AIR FILES / IFR PICK-UPS

Due to anticipated frequency congestion from the large volume of arrivals and departures to and from the Miami and Fort Lauderdale terminal areas, Miami ARTCC and TRACON will not be able to accept Air files nor provide IFR pick-ups from airborne flights to/from airports listed under the "Special Air Traffic Procedures" section, except in emergencies. Pilots should call the appropriate frequency, phone number or Flight Service Station (FSS) to request an IFR departure clearance prior to departure.

TRAINING FLIGHTS

South Florida airspace will be highly saturated with traffic; therefore, training flights and student solo cross-country flights are highly discouraged in the South Florida metro area (within 60NM of MIA). Practice approaches, touch-and-go landings, and other training operations may be limited or suspended.

Scheduled TELCONs / Webinars

The 4th Tuesday of each month at 11:00 AM EST thru January 2020. More will be added if needed.

AIRPORT PARKING RESERVATIONS

A reservation program to facilitate ground services will be in effect at participating South Florida airports. Reservations are administered by local Fixed Base Operators (FBO). Contact the FBO at your destination for reservations and additional information.

All pilots/operators are STRONGLY encouraged to contact the FBO prior to departure to ensure availability for both overnight parking and passenger pickup/drop-off.
