peaceful chiricahua skies

a local coalition of organizations, businesses, and individuals in the Chiricahua-Peloncillo and surrounding areas that are opposing expanded military training flights

Peaceful Chiricahua Skies is a local coalition of organizations, businesses, and individuals in the Chiricahua-Peloncillo and surrounding areas acting as a clearinghouse for those opposing expanded military training flights in the Tombstone MOA area.

In response to community pressure, the Air Force has extended the deadline for scoping comments to June 3! 

If you didn’t get your comments in or have more to say, submit your comments here.

Members of our coalition include the Center for Biological Diversity, Southwestern Research Station (American Museum of Natural History), Friends of Cave Creek Canyon, Chiricahua Regional Council, Peaceful Gila Skies, Natural Allies, Migration Taco, and others. PCS has no paid staff. It is an all volunteer effort supported by volunteers who are residents of the area affected. We are also relying on assistance from our coalition member organizations. (Because of our expedited need to get this effort going, it will be necessary to announce these partners over time. If you would like to join our coalition, please let us know.)

Here is more information about the U.S. Air Force proposal to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the potential environmental consequences associated with optimizing the Special Use Airspace (SUA) to support aircrews stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Luke AFB, and Morris Air National Guard Base in Arizona.
