Jet in the SFRA
With (...) I mark sections that I don't understand from the audio file, as well as sections I have omitted, as they were unrelated transmissions.
In my opinion, jet traffic should be banned from the SFRA. Just the amount of additional
causes brings me to the opinion that jets should be banned from the Exclusion Zone / SFRA. In 93.95(i) turbojet traffic is prohibited for example in the Los Angeles SFRA.
