The FAA has imposed temporary flight restrictions over Donald Trump's high-rise home as a safety measure in response to his presidential victory.
A notice dated Wednesday
bars aircraft from flying below 2,999 feet in midtown Manhattan, where Trump Tower is located, and in parts of Brooklyn and Queens. It says military aircraft supporting the Secret Service are exempt, along with police and emergency aircraft.
The FAA generally issues temporary restrictions when there's a special event or hazardous condition.
The notice says the New York City air space restrictions are needed because of "VIP movement." They expire Jan. 21.
