The United States Air Force (USAF) plans to replace a portion of the existing KC-135 aerial refueling fleet with the KC-46A, which will be a new aircraft to the USAF’s fleet. As such, the USAF plans to identify locations for the beddown of a formal training unit (FTU) and the first main operating base (MOB 1), which will both be led by active duty units; as well as the second main operating base (MOB 2), which will be led by an Air National Guard (ANG) unit. There are 2 separate environmental analyses being conducted concurrently: MOB 1 / FTU (active duty USAF), and the MOB 2 (Air National Guard). The public may be interested in one or both of these Environmental Impact Statements (EIS), and can access either through this website.
Please select which EIS you are interested in and you will be directed to the appropriate website.
