On 10/tue/01, I violated the tfr's surrounding an area near ZZZ, us. I did not know that I was violating restr airspace. I generally rely on aviation association's email for information on post 09/tue/01 flight restrs. Their email arrived 10/mon/01 evening after I had left work. I also heard on the nightly news, that new restrs were in place near power plants, they didn't mention that they applied to other sites as well. I think there are two causes to this infraction. 1) I should have checked NOTAMS prior to my flight, and 2) there should be more advance notice by the FAA of tfr's.

Narrative: ON 10/TUE/01, I VIOLATED THE TFR'S SURROUNDING AN AREA NEAR ZZZ, US. I DID NOT KNOW THAT I WAS VIOLATING RESTR AIRSPACE. I GENERALLY RELY ON AVIATION ASSOCIATION'S EMAIL FOR INFO ON POST 09/TUE/01 FLT RESTRS. THEIR EMAIL ARRIVED 10/MON/01 EVENING AFTER I HAD LEFT WORK. I ALSO HEARD ON THE NIGHTLY NEWS, THAT NEW RESTRS WERE IN PLACE NEAR PWR PLANTS, THEY DIDN'T MENTION THAT THEY APPLIED TO OTHER SITES AS WELL. I THINK THERE ARE TWO CAUSES TO THIS INFRACTION. 1) I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED NOTAMS PRIOR TO MY FLT, AND 2) THERE SHOULD BE MORE ADVANCE NOTICE BY THE FAA OF TFR'S.
