Abstract : The Proposed Action involves the installation of a new 35,000 square feet JETC facility with 15,000 square feet storage barn at Edwards AFB. The new facility would be located on the Main Base near the existing maintenance facility (Building 3810). The new JETC facility would include a total of three test cells, with one cell capable of testing 150,000 pound thrust class engines, another cell capable of testing 100,000 pound multi-vectoring thrust class engines and a third cell capable of running 100,000 pound thrust class engines. In addition to the new JETC facility, Edwards AFB is also proposing to construct a 15,000 square foot storage barn. The existing JETC at Building 3804 would remain operational for testing of small jet engines.
