The U.S. Air Force basing alternatives for an F-35A Pilot Training Center include Boise Air Terminal Air Guard Station, Idaho; Holloman Air Force Base (AFB), New Mexico; Luke AFB, Arizona; and Tucson International Airport Air Guard Station, Arizona.
Public hearings on the F-35A Training Basing Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be held:
(A) Tue 21-FEB-2012, open house at 5:00PM and formal presentation at 6:00PM
Windemere Hotel and Conference Center, Grand Ballroom
2047 South Hwy 92
Sierra Vista, AZ (road trip!)
(B) Wed 22-FEB-2012, open house at 5:00PM and formal presentation at 6:00PM
Holiday Inn Hotel, North Ballroom
4550 South Palo Verde Road (just north of East Irvington Road between the swap meet and Southwest Gas)
SunTran #11 (southbound: make sure the sign says 'AIRPORT' and not 'Laos Center') runs past the Holiday Inn on Palo Verde.
(C) Thu 23-FEB-2012, open house at 5:00PM and formal presentation at 6:00PM
Tucson Jewish Community Center Auditorium
3800 East River Road (southeast corner of North Dodge Blvd)
SunTran #11 northbound follows Alvernon to the JCC.
The Air Force's preferred alternative is to base the pilot training center at Luke AFB; however, no decisions will be made until after the EIS process is complete.
