NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI)
The
U.S. Air Force
announces the availability of the FONSI for the Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) to change the method of communicating the Grand Bay Range Restricted Area (R-3008) hours of operation. The proposed action involves changing the published hours to more accurately reflect the actual time of operation. The current method is a combination of the FAA published schedule and a daily Notice to Airman (NOTAM). The Air Force proposes to amend the published hours of operations in FAA Order 7400.8 and eliminate the requirement to issue a daily NOTAM. This change will provide a consistent schedule of Restricted Area operations to the flying community, thus enabling advanced flight planning and eliminate the requirement to issue a short notice daily NOTAM. There is no proposed change to the actual flying hours, usage, or to flight operations.
The Final SEA provides an assessment of potential environmental impacts resulting from the Proposed Action and alternatives. The analysis led the U.S. Air Force to conclude that the Proposed Action can be achieved without significant environmental impacts; therefore, a FONSI is warranted.
The Final SEA and FONSI are available for viewing on the Moody AFB website at:
