or did I misread that?
you misread it.

It was saying the ONLY way you can fly near the area is if you have an IFR flight plan and are squawking a discrete transponder code AND that your operation does not fall within the unauthorized operations listed below in the TFR.

This TFR sounds exactly like the one we had over the Super Bowl last year. Not even allowed to fly a slowstick 5 miles away!

Looks like they have a TFR for Sunday for whatever reason, probably some sort of public event and another one on Tuesday for the inaugural event.

There was a hobbyist a few years ago doing AP of a college bowl game with a Slowstick and they called in the FBI.

If you are in Louisiana, I think you are outside the TFR by a long ways out. Just in case, though, I'd advise against any cropdusting in Washington DC on Tuesday unless you coordinate in advance or enjoy cropdusting with a fighter escort. One heatseaker and you are toast.

VideoKid,

Am I understanding you correctly...you'll be using an RC vehicle to spray pesticide?

That's pretty interesting.

I used to spray from a full-size MD500D so I'm very familiar with the licenses you had to obtain...fun stuff eh? *yawn*

When in doubt...auto out

I got the inside poop that some dingus with a Slow Stick doing AP overflew the Pope during his last visit.
DHS basically ruined his life for quite a while. Even worse, he didn't get to keep the pic's
