Ten Second Tip: Rocket Launches and Flight Delays

If you’re flying in or out of Orlando International Airport, you might want to check to see if there is a rocket launch scheduled at Cape Canaveral. During a launch there is a large no-fly zone, and it does affect flights in and out of Orlando. It could cause your flight to be delayed. This includes landing as well as takeoff. Flights in the air could be rerouted away from the zone until after the launch. Don’t change your plans because of this, it’s just something to be aware of.
