Pitt game flight restriction

by Dennis Moore

p. A Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) flight restriction will remain in effect for the University of Notre Dame’s home football game with Pittsburgh Saturday (Oct. 6), but those attending the game may see aircraft near Notre Dame Stadium as commercial and private planes land and take off from South Bend Regional Airport.
p. The restriction prohibits aircraft such as planes towing banners or helicopters (other than military, police or emergency craft) from flying within 3 miles and 3,000 feet overhead of the stadium.
p. Commercial and private aircraft using South Bend Regional Airport may fly within the restricted area at the discretion of air traffic controllers, and since the airport’s primary landing pattern is east-west, traffic frequently flies over campus in the vicinity of the stadium.
