The final version of the environmental impact statement for the Oregon National Guard Airspace Initiative was made publicly available, May 19, for a 30-day viewing period. The proposal is to establish and modify Military Training Airspace for the Oregon Air National Guard (ANG).

The proposed Oregon Airspace Initiative is to provide appropriately sized and configured airspace within close proximity to Oregon Air National Guard flying units to support advanced 21st century air-to-air tactical fighter technologies and training mission requirements.

The proposed action includes modification and addition to military training airspace located over northwestern, north-central and south-central Oregon and the Pacific Ocean. In addition, minor portions of the proposed action would be located above a small area of northwestern Nevada and the southwestern-most corner of Washington. It is important to note that this proposed action would result in airspace changes only and does not include any project components that would touch or otherwise directly affect the ground or water surface.
