The FAA has established a TFR along the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona and New Mexico that many pilots don’t think is temporary. The TFR, 300 nm long and 17 nm wide, is designed to prevent U.S. Customs and Border Patrol unmanned surveillance aircraft (UAVs) from colliding with civilian aircraft. Active from 5 p.m. until 7 a.m. daily, the TFR will be in effect until Dec. 31. It’s likely it will be renewed next year.
