January 14, 2010 — The FAA announced two-tiered airspace restrictions for Super Bowl XLIV, scheduled for February 7 at Dolphin Stadium in Miami, Florida. The following temporary flight restriction (TFR) will apply on game day from 4-11:59 p.m. local:

Any person who knowingly and willingly violates these restrictions may be subject to certain criminal and/or civil penalties. Pilots who violate security TFRs or procedures may be intercepted, detained and interviewed by Law Enforcement/Security Personnel, and be subject to further actions.
The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang gliding, balloon operations, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population control flight operations, banner towing operations, sightseeing operations, model aircraft operations, model rocketry, seaplane/amphibious water operations and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).
