EA - Environmental Assessment

Document Description
The proposed action is to continue to conduct routine and recurring UAV flight operations in a manner similar to manned aircraft. UAVs would operate primarily in R-2508 and R-2515 special use airspace and conduct flight operation in accordance with AFFTC and NASA mission requirements. Up to 40% of the flight operations would transition to other local Department of Defense Ranges including the Navy Sea Range and Nellis AFB Test and Training Range.
