Beddown of Foreign Military Sales Pilot Training Center at Ebbing Air National Guard Base (ANGB), Arkansas or Selfridge ANGB, Michigan Environmental Impact Statement
The Department of the Air Force (DAF) is proposing an action to establish a permanent Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Pilot Training Center (PTC) at either Ebbing Air National Guard Base (ANGB), Arkansas or Selfridge ANGB, Michigan. The FMS PTC would initially provide beddown of up to 36 F-35 aircraft at a single location within the United States. Additionally, as part of the FMS program the Republic of Singapore would relocate 12 F-16s from Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, to the FMS PTC location. The DAF preferred alternative is to locate the FMS PTC at Ebbing ANGB.

The Proposed Action is needed to provide a centralized location for training and pilot production associated with FMS. The DAF has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) evaluating implementation of the Proposed Action and Alternative. The Draft EIS is available here.

While the DAF will accept comments at any time during the environmental process, the DAF requested comments from interested local, state, and federal agencies; federally recognized tribes; and interested members of the public by October 17, 2022 in order to ensure the DAF has sufficient time to consider public input in preparation of the Final EIS. The DEIS comment period is now closed. For further information, please contact:
