Air Space Proposal

Public Notice

A Final Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) have been prepared to analyze the potential impacts associated with the modification, expansion, and utilization of the Alpena Special Use Airspace (SUA) Complex. The proposed modifications and additions to the Alpena SUA Complex are designed to meet current and emerging training requirements and contribute to the most efficient use of the airspace structure.

The EA was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the President’s Council on Environmental Quality NEPA Regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] §1500-1508, revised 2020 and 2022), the Department of the Air Force’s (DAF) Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP; 32 CFR §989), the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures (FAA Order 1050.1F), and the FAA’s Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters (FAA Joint Order [JO] 7400.2P).

The EA evaluated the potential impacts associated with the proposed modifications, expansion, and utilization of the Alpena SUA Complex. Based on the EA, a FONSI has been prepared and a determination has been made that an Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
