    He hopes he can visit the United Nations building while he (is/will be) in New York.

    He hopes he can visit the United Nations building while he (is/will be) in New York.


    My grammar book says the answer for the above sentence is 'is', and I wonder why.

    Is it impossible to use 'will' in while clause?
