Abstract : Based on the analysis in the draft Environmental Assessment (EA), the US Air Force is proposing Alternative B as the Proposed Action. The PA is to reconfigure (expand) the lateral and vertical boundaries of Paradise East and Paradise West MOAs. The floor of the MOAs would be lowered from 14,500 feet above mean sea level (MSL) to 10,000 feet MSL or 3,000 feet above ground level, whichever is higher, and would add approximately 16,985 cubic nautical miles of training airspace. MHAFB would seek corresponding lateral boundaries for air traffic control-assigned airspace with the new MOA boundaries.
