Abstract This Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes the potential environmental consequences resulting from a United States (U.S.) Air Force (USAF) proposal to beddown a USAF-lead Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) squadron of F-15SA aircraft and associated personnel working under the 366th Fighter Wing (366 FW) at Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) in Idaho. The RSAF would purchase up to 18 F-15SA aircraft, provide RSAF military personnel and fund U.S. contractor personnel, fund the construction and modification of facilities, and provide equipment to operate the squadron and maintenance training function for at least five years. This EA has been prepared by the USAF in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR 1500-1508), and the USAF s implementing regulations (32 CFR 989). The purpose of this action is to establish a USAF-lead RSAF F-15SA training squadron (i.e., Formal Training Unit FTU) and maintenance training center within the Continental U.S. (CONUS) at a location that would maximize training and minimize cost and environmental impacts. Saudi Arabia has submitted a Letter of Request for the need to establish an USAF-led F-15SA training squadron based in the CONUS. The Secretary of the Air Force (SECAF) and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force (CSAF) agreed to offer the RSAF a CONUS basing option with the completion of a signed Letter of Agreement identifying details of the RSAF basing proposal. In light of the RSAF request, the Air Force, following the tenets of the strategic basing process, assessed the ability of Mountain Home AFB to satisfy RSAF requirements.
