If you are inbound to KSUA during the two days the notam is in effect you must land First at KMLB or KPBI and "Clear" TSA screenings
before landing at my airport.

During VP Bush and latter President Bush would come to town to visit his mother on Jupiter Island the airport would close IIRC one hour before his arrival or departure.

One more reason- as if more are needed- to hate the prick.

You must respect the king's airspace. This is a clear violation of our constitutional rights. It is the equivalent of telling an entire group of people they cannot use their cars in a given area. Bicycles and walking is ok, but as far as I'm concerned, it is an excessive restriction to those of us who travel by aircraft. A short window for arrival and departure and the requirement of exit corridors and a temporary Mode C airspace seems reasonable, but to lock us down for days on end is flat-out denying our constitutional right to travel. I occasionally spend weeks where my only method of travel is by aircraft. I walk to the airport, go to my destination and then return home. If someone's out in the country with a grass strip, they can fly to a n urban airport, walk a couple blocks, pick up their groceries and fly home easier than they can drive to the nearest store. An airplane makes this as possible just as a car makes it possible to live in the suburbs for some people.

CASE #1: "The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived." Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221.


CASE #2: "The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579.

It could not be stated more directly or conclusively that citizens of the states have a common law right to travel, without approval or restriction (license), and that this right is protected under the U.S Constitution.


CASE #3: "The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment." Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.


CASE #4: "The right to travel is a well-established common right that does not owe its existence to the federal government. It is recognized by the courts as a natural right." Schactman v. Dulles 96 App DC 287, 225 F2d 938, at 941.
