MountainScope downloads TFRs via the internet

TFRs are definitely an aspect of flying that is on the minds of pilots since the 9/11 attacks. Keeping up to date on this information is essential to safety, as well as essential to those who want to keep their pilot certificates!

There's no substitute for current, accurate information, and now MountainScope has the capability of downloading the current list of TFRs from the same source that the flight service stations use. This feature is free, only requiring an extra plugin, which is also free from the web site.

As an example, below is a screen shot of the TFRs in effect near Mt St Helens -- and look, our flight plan to Portland goes right through it... I guess we'd better go around! (Click on it for a bigger image)
