The Proposed Action would increase the number of F-22A aircraft currently assigned to Langley AFB by adding six additional F-22A aircraft to the 1st Fighter Wing 1 FW at Langley AFB, VA, and also stand up a T-38A aircraft detachment of 14 training aircraft within the 1st Fighter Wing 1 FW at Langley AFB, VA. Each F-22A fighter squadron 27 FS and 94 FS would each receive three Primary Mission Aircraft Inventory PMAI F-22As and two Backup Aircraft Inventory BAI F-22As with a total of 94 enlisted manpower authorizations from other locations this would increase the total number of F-22A aircraft from 36 to 46. The T-38A aircraft would provide Dissimilar Air Combat Training DACT for the F-22As in place of the F-15Cs. Currently projected are up to 14 x T-38 Primary Training Aircraft Inventory PTAI to support the two F-22A squadrons 27 FS and 94 FS, with 12-14 contract maintenance personnel. The intent is for the total number ofT-38s to operate at Langley AFB for approximately 8-10 years FYll - FY21. There will be no new facilities required. Facilities have already been completed under the 2002 EIS. Facility support for the T-38 detachment requires no new facility construction existing facilities would accommodate the additional aircraft and personnel.
