With the filing of the Draft EIS, the DoN is initiating a 45-day public comment period beginning on June 29, 2012 and ending on August 13, 2012. During this period, the DoN will conduct two public meetings to receive oral and written comments on the Draft EIS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent to prepare this Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on May 12, 2010 (75 FR 26739). The DoN’s proposed action is to support and PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39489 conduct aircraft training operations and capabilities at NAS Key West by maintaining current/baseline training operations, supporting airfield operations by introducing new types of aircraft, and modifying airfield operations as necessary in support of the Fleet Response Training Plan. The purpose of the proposed action is to sustain fleet training at and associated with NAS Key West airfield for Navy tactical aviation and for use by other Department of Defense and federal agencies. The proposed action is needed in order to maintain the level of readiness mandated in Title 10 United States Code Part 5062. The Draft EIS evaluates the potential environmental effects of the No Action Alternative and three action alternatives. Under the No Action Alternative, annual airfield operations would continue to occur at a level similar to present (approximately 47,500 annual operations); support of existing capabilities would continue; no new aircraft would be introduced; and, no facilities would be altered to support next generation aircraft training operations. Under Alternative 1, annual airfield operations would continue at a level similar to present (approximately 47,500 annual operations), plus legacy aircraft would gradually transition to next generation aircraft and existing facilities would be altered to meet requirements for next generation aircraft. Alternative 2 would be the same as Alternative 1, plus provide the flexibility to accommodate additional carrier air wing Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) training at NAS Key West when primary carrier air wing training locations around the United States are unavailable. Additional carrier air wing FCLP operations would vary annually based on availability of the primary training locations, but could total up to 4,500 additional operations (2,250 patterns). Total annual airfield operations under Alternative 2 could equal approximately 52,000 operations. Alternative 3 would be the same as Alternative 2, plus provide operational capacity and flexibility to effectively meet DoN training requirements under the Fleet Response Training Plan with an approximate ten percent increase in other annual airfield operations. Total annual airfield operations under this alternative could equal approximately 57,000 operations. A preferred alternative has not been selected or identified by the DoN. The DoN seeks comment from the public or interested parties regarding selection of a preferred alternative.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent to prepare this Draft EIS 
was published in the Federal Register on May 12, 2010 (75 FR 26739). 
The DoN's proposed action is to support and conduct aircraft training 
operations and capabilities at NAS Key West by maintaining current/
baseline training operations, supporting airfield operations by 
introducing new types of aircraft, and modifying airfield operations as 
necessary in support of the Fleet Response Training Plan. The purpose 
of the proposed action is to sustain fleet training at and associated

other Department of Defense and federal agencies. The proposed action 
is needed in order to maintain the level of readiness mandated in Title 
10 United States Code Part 5062.
    The Draft EIS evaluates the potential environmental effects of the 
No Action Alternative and three action alternatives. Under the No 
Action Alternative, annual airfield operations would continue to occur 
at a level similar to present (approximately 47,500 annual operations); 
support of existing capabilities would continue; no new aircraft would 
be introduced; and, no facilities would be altered to support next
