The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary no-fly zone affecting drone flying in the San Francisco Bay Area beginning Tuesday night within 30 miles of all local airports, as Air Force One will be arriving today with President Barack Obama on board.

The restrictions, issued Monday, cover any aircraft or aerial vehicles not arriving or departing local airports. Commercial aircraft and passenger flights will not be affected.

The no-fly zone will begin Tuesday at 8:45 p.m. Pacific Time and will continue to 4:45 p.m. Wednesday. The areas affected include most of the Bay Area, from south of Petaluma to Morgan Hill and from the coastline to east of Antioch.

The president is set to arrive into San Francisco International Airport at about 9 p.m. Tuesday night and will depart the Bay Area for another event in Los Angeles Wednesday.

During his stay, Obama will attend a Silicon Valley fundraising dinner in Los Altos, where he and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will visit the home of real-estate developer and major Democratic donor George Marcus.
