NORTHWEST AVIATION OPERATIONS OFF-BASE HELICOPTER TRAINING AREAS
NOTICE OF PUBLIC SCOPING COMMENT PERIOD EXTENSION
Interested parties are hereby notified that the Aviation Division within the Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization, and Security at Joint Base Lewis-McChord proposes to establish three off-base helicopter training areas and one mountain training area. The U.S. Army is the lead Federal agency for the proposed action. The proposed training areas would support training operations stationed out of JBLM, but would be located off-base within Washington State. Training operations would be conducted using aircraft to include the MH/UH-60 Black Hawk, AH-64 Apache, and MH/CH-47 Chinook. The training areas would be available for use day and night, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with the exception of Federal holidays
