Abstract:

A permanent C-17 Northeast Landing Zone NE LZ is scheduled for completion by Fiscal Year FY 2010 at Naval Air Engineering Station NAES Lakehurst, New Jersey, to serve as the primary northeast C-17 aircraft training airfield for use by both the 305th Air Mobility Wing 305 AMW from McGuire Air Force Base AFB and the 436th Airlift Wing 436 AW from Dover AFB. In the interim, there is a need to establish temporary landing zone LZ capabilities at one or more airfields in the northeast. The proposed interim C-17 LZs would be in close proximity to McGuire AFB and Dover AFB to allow day and night assault training and tactical approaches and departures for C-17 aircrews. Two locations Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield AAF and Richmond International Airport lAP meet the required criteria and were selected as the Interim Flight Training Authority sites for the C-17.
