MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho – On July 14, 2023, the Department of the Air Force (DAF) signed the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Airspace Optimization for Readiness at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho Environmental Impact Statement. The DAF selected Alternative 1, 100-Foot Above Ground Level (AGL) Floor (for subsonic operations) Across All Military Operations Areas (MOAs) and Alternative B: 10,000-Foot AGL Supersonic Floor Across All MOAs. Based on this decision, the DAF will request the Federal Aviation Administration to modify the subsonic low-altitude floors and supersonic altitude floors to be consistent across all MOAs in the Mountain Home Special Use Airspace.

The DAF decision documented in the ROD was based on matters discussed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement, inputs from the public and regulatory agencies, and other relevant factors. The Notice of Availability for the ROD was published in the Federal Register on August 2, 2023 (Volume 88, Number 147, Page 50849). The Final Environmental Impact Statement was made available to the public on March 3, 2023, through a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register (Volume 88, Number 42, Page 13443) with a waiting period that ended on April 3, 2023.

A copy of the ROD can be obtained through the project website:
