Welcome to the Department of the Navy (Navy) web site for the proposed Outlying Landing Field (OLF) Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This site has been developed in support of the environmental review process for the proposed construction and operation of a new OLF in order to provide the public the most current information on this project. For this proposal, the Navy will evaluate the potential environmental impacts of construction and operation of an OLF to support field carrier landing practice (FCLP) operations of carrier-based fixed-wing aircraft stationed at and transient to Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Naval Station (NS) Norfolk, Norfolk, Virginia. The EIS will be prepared in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and EIS guidelines.
This site provides current information about the EIS process being completed for
the project. Whenever you visit the site, be sure to check out the
Project Updates page, which provides the most recent updates on the EIS.
The Navy is suspending release of and stopping work on the Outlying Landing Field (OLF) Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) until the east coast Navy Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) basing and training requirements are better defined. The East Coast Navy JSF Basing EIS will commence at a time to be determined, but no earlier than 2014. Thus, no earlier than 2014, the Navy will re-evaluate the OLF requirement and potential east coast JSF home basing locations.
This website will be shut down on 28 February 2011.
Thank you for visiting the Navy OLF EIS web site.
