Default Harvey Relief Flights

For those of you interested in Operation Air Drop, here is the gouge:

If you plan on being a part of Operation Air Drop (http://mailchi.mp/cessna/harvey-reli...9?e=448c4c1cba) and file IFR into KCXO?the TFR should not be a problem. If you want to enter VFR (via Flight following), you will need to call the FAA and receive a squawk code (same code used for departure).

Call 512-782-5447 and tell them you will be delivering supplies (baby formula, diapers, sleeping bags, toiletries) into KCXO and need a squawk code to enter the TFR. They should provide the code. Be sure and call before you depart. It is important to squawk the code upon departing the TFR as well and then release your code once clear of the TFR so others can get a code. ATC should accommodate you.

Thanks for caring...

Latest amendments to the TFR state you should call the AOC number Smokey gives AFTER 6PM local to receive a squawk code for the next day. I'm flying into Sugarland Saturday to bring evacuees back home.
