2017 Super Bowl LI

Special Air Traffic Procedures

 

Houston, Texas, February 2 – 8, 2017

In anticipation of a large number of aircraft operating in the Houston, Texas area during the week of Super Bowl LI, the following special air traffic procedures will be used to minimize air traffic delays and enhance safety.

 

GENERAL

Temporary routes have been instituted into/out of the Houston Terminal area to optimize the traffic flow for the Houston satellite airports.  These temporary routings are designed to increase the efficiency of the Houston TRACON airspace minimize air traffic delays.  Note that some normal arrival and departure routes will not be available within 350nm of the Houston Terminal Airspace between Thursday, February 2 and Monday, February 6th.  The preferred arrival and departures routes that have been modified for this event are defined below for the airports within 60nm of NRG Stadium.  Airports that are not listed in the Preferred Arrival and Departure Routes tables below should file and can expect normal arrival and departure routings.

IFR airborne filings within the terminal area should not be expected.  IFR changes of destination will not be granted within 350nm of the Houston Terminal Airspace except in emergency situations.  Duplicate flight plans (same time/call sign) to multiple airport destinations are subject to removal from the system.

 

VFR HOUSTON TERMINAL AREA OPERATIONS

Class B airspace requirements apply.  Due to the high volume of traffic related to Super Bowl LI, VFR arrivals to the Houston Metropolitan Area may experience lengthy delays outside of the Class B airspace until traffic volume permits safe entry and transit of the airspace.  Formation flights, practice approaches, multiple approaches, and touch and go operations are prohibited in the terminal area.  VFR advisory service within the terminal area will be on a workload-permitting basis.  Pilots are cautioned that Class B violators will be aggressively pursued.

IFR DEPARTURE

 

Confirm your departure date and time with the FBO upon arrival or as soon as possible for staging purposes.  Provide any updates on desired departure time to the FBO.

 

Turboprop and Piston aircraft should expect interim altitudes until 100nm from the Houston Terminal Airspace.

 All departing aircraft contact clearance delivery on the appropriate frequency listed above.  For those airports without a clearance delivery or RCO clearance delivery frequency, contact Houston TRACON Clearance Delivery at 281-443-5844.

Advise if IFR or VFR, where you are parked and ATIS code where appropriate.  Pilots are requested to delay engine start-up until you have your clearance and immediately before taxi.

DO NOT CALL GROUND CONTROL TO TAXI until you are the number one aircraft and ready to taxi. 

DO NOT CALL THE TOWER FOR DEPARTURE until you are in the number one position for the runway.
