Announcement: The U.S. Air Force (USAF) signed the Record of Decision (ROD). The Final EIS, Final Executive Summary, and ROD
are available and can be found on the Documentation page accessible by clicking
or by clicking the DOCUMENTATION menu item on the website navigation area above.
This website is provided by the Air Force for the purposes of providing information and assisting in the evaluation of
potential environmental and human health impacts resulting from basing the new KC-46A tanker at the Formal Training Unit (FTU) and the First Main Operating Base (MOB 1).
The new KC-46A Tanker is intended to replace a portion of the U.S. Air Force's aging fleet of KC-135 Stratotankers which has been the primary
refueling aircraft for more than 50 years.
The Final EIS for the FTU and MOB 1 KC-46A missions has been prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and the Council on
Environmental Quality regulations at 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508. Pursuant to the CEQ regulations the Air Force
invites public participation in the NEPA process.
Throughout this EIS process, this website will provide information documenting the potential impacts of the beddown of this aircraft at the alternative bases
identified for the FTU and MOB 1 missions.
If you have any questions on this project, please contact the appropriate personnel referenced on the Project Contacts page.
Welcome! This website provides the capability to view, download, and distribute environmental documentation associated with the
KC-46A FTU and MOB 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) project.

Federal Register on 21 March 2014. The 30-day post-filing waiting period ended on 21 April 2014.
