Document Description
The United States Air Force (Air Force), Headquarters Air Combat Command proposes to establish a full complement of Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) assets at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (AFB), AZ. The proposed CSAR unit would include 3 squadrons: HC-130 fixed-wing aircraft squadron; HH-60 helicopter squadron; and a Combat-Rescue Officer (CRO)-led squadron that would include CROs, Pararescue Jumpers (PJs), and Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) specialists. The Air Force needs more CSAR assets to adequately support worldwide, deployable long-range combat search and rescue of downed aircrew members. The proposed action would begin in the fall of 2002 and the beddown would be completed by 2007. The action would add 12 HH-160 helicopters, 10 HC-130 fixed-wing aircraft, and 1,059 personnel to Davis-Monthan AFB. Building renovations and construction would be necessary to support the beddown. Training would occur in Low Altitude Tactical Navigation areas; portions of the Barry M. Goldwater Range (BMGR), and the Yuma Tactical Aircrew Combat Training System Range, and their associated restricted airspace; Jackal Low Military Operations Area (MOA); Sells Low MOA; and the Naval Air Station North Island Water Training Area off the coast of San Diego, CA. No changes to airspace structure, management, or scheduling are proposed.
