Moody EIS Header


Welcome to the official website for the Comprehensive Airspace Initiative Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) at Moody Air Force Base (AFB), Georgia. The Air Force has created this website to:

  • Share information with the public about the proposed action and alternatives
  • Provide documents and references to the public
  • Notify the public of the proposal and schedule
  • Enable the public to submit online comments

Public Scoping

The Public Scoping Period concluded on January 6, 2020. This was the deadline to ensure that the Air Force has sufficient time to consider public input in the preparation of the Draft EIS.

Draft EIS Public Comment Period

The public comment period for the Draft EIS has closed.

About the EIS

The Air Force invites you to participate in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The Air Force prepared a Draft EIS to assess the potential environmental effects of providing additional low-altitude training airspace at Moody AFB, Georgia. The Air Force invites you to review and submit comments on the Draft EIS through November 24, 2020.

Public Involvement

The NEPA process provides multiple opportunities for public review and input.

Proposed Action & Alternatives

The Proposed Action is needed to provide access for training missions operating at low altitudes from Moody AFB and to optimize the Moody Airspace Complex to enable effective training to achieve real-world combat readiness and survivability. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide a more realistic and regularly accessible airspace training environment to meet the need for aircrew training in Close Air Support and Combat Search and Rescue.

The Air Force has identified three alternatives that meet the project’s purpose and need.

Alternative 1 | Alternative 2 | Alternative 3

No Action Alternative.

There would be no changes to the existing special use airspace. Under the No Action Alternative, the operational floors of the Moody Airspace Complex would remain at 10,000 feet MSL in R-3008D; 8,000 feet MSL in the Corsair North, Corsair South, Hawg North, Hawg South, Mustang, Sabre, Thud, and Warhawk MOAs; at 500 feet AGL in the Moody 2 North MOA and R-3008C; at 100 feet AGL in the Moody 2 South MOA and R-3008B; and at the surface in R-3008A.

Get Involved & Timeline

Public Involvement and Input Are Essential

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) guides the Air Force public involvement and impact analysis processes.

NEPA has many ways to be involved:

  • Attending meetings
  • Reviewing the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
  • Submitting comments

This website:

  • Keeps you informed on this EIS
  • Provides documents for review

The Air Force hosted a scoping meeting in Tifton, Georgia, on 5 December 2019. Once the Draft EIS is published, the Air Force will host a public hearing, the date and location of which have not been finalized at this stage in the process. The location will be based on the areas potentially affected by the proposed action, as well as input received during the scoping process.

The availability of the Draft EIS will be announced in the Federal Register and through newspaper advertisements. All individuals that have requested a copy of the Draft EIS will receive a CD in the mail at the address they provided during scoping.

Scoping Period

Although comments can be submitted to the Air Force any time during the EIS process, scoping comments were requested by January 6, 2020, to ensure full consideration in the Draft EIS.
