of mercury, no person may operate an
aircraft or initiate a flight contrary to

of airspace in which a temporary flight
restriction applies when it determines
that a temporary flight restriction is
necessary to protect persons or property
on the surface or in the air, to
maintain air safety and efficiency, or
to prevent the unsafe congestion of aircraft
in the vicinity of an aerial demonstration
or major sporting event.
(b) In deciding whether a temporary
flight restriction is necessary for an
aerial demonstration or major sporting
event not listed in paragraph (a) of this
section, the FAA considers the following
(1) Area where the event will be held.
(2) Effect flight restrictions will have
on known aircraft operations.
(3) Any existing ATC airspace traffic
(4) Estimated duration of the event.
