The FAA will be conducting an environmental study of the proposed Delta Military Operations Area (MOA) complex in Delta Junction, Alaska. AOPA is opposing the proposed MOA because it would shut off the only corridor that bisects the Pacific Alaska Airspace Complex, which covers about 60,780 square miles. AOPA has explained to the Air Force that when active, the MOA would sever the IFR airways between Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Northway, and Glennallen, and expose VFR traffic to high-speed military aircraft flying along a heavily traveled corridor. AOPA wants the proposed MOA to be divided into a high and low complex, so that the entire area does not need to be active at the same time.
