But don't plan on flying a small plane or drone over it Feb. 13 during the Super Bowl. The Federal Aviation Administration announced Wednesday that Temporary Flight Restrictions, or TFR, will be in effect from 2:30 to 8:30 p.m., effective in a 30-mile circle around the Inglewood stadium and stretching up to 8,000 feet.

The TFR will not impact regularly scheduled commercial flights at Los Angeles International Airport. Nor will it affect emergency, medical, public safety or military aircraft.

But other pilots who enter the TFR area can face fines of more than $30,000, along with possible criminal charges, according to the FAA.

The entire TFR area will also be a ``no drone zone.'' Anyone who flies a drone in the restricted area could also face fines and prosecution.

FAA officials said the agency is working with local law enforcement, the NFL and the aviation community to plan for the game, including an anticipated ``hundreds of additional take-offs and landings and aircraft parked at Los Angeles-area airports'' during Super Bowl week.

The state-of-the-art venue SoFi Stadium is no ordinary football park.

A reservation system for aircraft parking will be in effect at most airfields in the area, including LAX, from Feb. 6-14, and special air traffic procedures will be in place at all airports in the region.
