Abstract:

The 911th Airlift Wing 911 AW is an Air Force Reserve Command AFRC unit at Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station lAP ARS, Pennsylvania. The 911 AW is equipped with eight assigned C-130H Hercules cargotransport aircraft. The 911 A W provides strategic, long-range airlift support to active-duty United States Air Force USAF and training for assigned Reservists, during peacetime, under the command and control of Headquarters HQ AFRC. In war, or during times of national emergency, the 911 AW is under the direction of Air Mobility Command AMC. An Environmental Assessment EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA and the Environmental Impact Analysis Process 32 Code of Federal Regulations CFR Part 989. The EA is incorporated by reference into this Finding of No Significant Impact FONSI. The 911 AW has proposed to construct a new Wing HQ Facility in order to meet current antiterrorismforce protection ATFP guidelines for setback distances from roadways and parking areas. The existing Wing HQ Facility Building 316, which does not meet current ATFP guidelines, was constructed in 1975 and is still in relatively good condition. However, the need for administrative space within the Wing has grown over the years and the large demand for this space has forced the base to encroach upon other existing facilities such as the Visiting Quarters.
