Air Traffic Control Assigned Airspace (ATCAA) unit and would not extend 
below 14,000 feet mean sea level. The Air Force proposal includes use 
of chaff and flares in the MOA and authorization of supersonic flight 
in the ATCAA.
    Dates and Addresses: The Air Force will host a series of scoping 
meetings to receive public input on environmental concerns that should 
be addressed in the EIS. The schedule and location of the public 
scoping open house meetings are below. All meetings will last from 6
