Game Day TFR and
Non-towered Airport Procedures & Information ~ Downtown Island Airport (DKX) Knoxville, Tennessee

I. Purpose   

In the past, the Downtown Island Airport (DKX) has utilized a temporary tower during University of Tennessee home football games for local Air Traffic Control services. However, there will be NO ATC Tower in operation until further notice during the UT football season(s). DKX will continue operating as a Non-towered Airport during these home games. Due to national security concerns, a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) NOTAM is required to be issued on all game days. FDC NOTAM 9/5151 outlining Temporary Flight Restrictions from one hour prior to game time until one hour after the game ends will be in effect. The TFR fully encompasses the DKX airport. TFR information is available at http://tfr.faa.gov or through Flight Service. Aircraft inbound to the Knoxville, TN area should monitor the McGhee Tyson Airport ATIS on 128.35 for up to date TFR information. If you are planning on flying to DKX for any of the UT home football games, we recommended you Avoid the TFR by arriving at DKX at least 1 hour prior to kickoff and departing at least 1 hour after the game ends. Otherwise, please CLICK on the links below and become familiar with the following documents:


*     Game Day TFR and Non-towered Airport Procedures
