Hi,

I'm flying in the US (Oshkosh) and am alarmed at the lack of TFR's in SkyDemon.
The TFR's are clearly described and listed by the FAA and entering one is a serious offense.

As an example, please see KMSO on skyvector.com and note all the red outlined polygons around KMSO which are all fires.
These are more important than Notams!
Blasting through a TFR is a quick way to lose a license, and get a visit from F-14's...

Will you please take a look at the FAA's data publications and add TFR's to your list of digital overlays in SkyDemon?
Only because of Flight Following (same thing as Information in Europe) was I able to dodge such TFR's...

I thought SkyDemon showed everything that way, but this almost got me into big trouble over here, so my trust for SkyDemon was badly undermined...

Thanks‌‌

SkyDemon is European software for use in Europe.

We provide some free USA charting built from free FAA‌‌ data but have never claimed to have TFRs, many of which are published outside the ICAO NOTAM system.

Please do not use SkyDemon in the USA without adequately briefing yourself on USA-specific items like TFRs.‌‌

Ah, good to know.
I'll stop marketing it to my US friends.

Thanks
