The U.S. Air Force is again looking at bringing the F-35A training aircraft to Gowen Field. During February, you’ll have three chances to learn about the impact to the area and voice your opinion.

The Air Force is holding three public hearings on  the draft environmental impact statement for the proposed basing of the aircraft at Gowen Field.  The proposal includes establishing a pilot training center where Air Force pilots and personnel would learn to safely and effectively operate the new F-35A.  The public hearings will include a presentation on the proposed impact, followed by a formal comment session. Two meetings will be held in Boise and one in Marsing.
