AOPA has submitted its comments opposing the planned White Elk MOA (military operations area), which would expand the Utah Test and Training Area west into Nevada, and is reminding local pilots to make their concerns known before the Jan. 7 deadline. In its comments, AOPA reminded the Air Force that airspace—including Victor airways that would be adversely affected by new restrictions—must be included in the planned environmental impact study for the new MOA. Specifically, AOPA is concerned that the proposed MOA would have a negative impact on Victor 269, which runs north and south through the area. See AOPA Online.
