Lemoore Naval Air Station Airspace Grab

The Navy has begun a sophisticated campaign to create a new military operations area (MOA) over Lemoore Naval Air Station in California’s Central Valley, just southwest of Fresno. AOPA is questioning the need for the Lemoore MOA. “It’s hard to see the need for this additional MOA considering the huge expanse of special-use airspace that exists already just minutes east of the air station,” said Heidi Williams, AOPA manager of air traffic policy. “If there is some reason why they can’t use the nearby Foothill, Porterville, Baskersfield, Bishop, Owens, and Isabella MOAs, perhaps they’d be willing to give that airspace back to civilian pilots.
