New Airspace Restrictions?

I regularly get email announcements from the FAA. This one caught my eye. Over the last few years, we have been compelled to check for TFRs before flying. “Soon” we will be compelled to check for TRAs — Temporary Restricted Areas. The announcement is vague saying these TRAs will be for “limited use” in “certain areas.”

FAA Sources for Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) Information
Notice Number: NOTC7310

The FAA will soon begin limited use of a Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) in certain areas when the types of operation(s) to be conducted there require a TRA. The flight rules that apply to a TRA are the same as a Restricted Area (RA). The best FAA resources to view any TRAs upcoming or active are the FAA Special Use Airspace (SUA) website and the Notices to Airmen Publication (NTAP). Please use the following links to access these resources before a flight:
