CHICAGO — To allow the public full opportunity to give their input about the creation of eight new Military Operations Areas (MOAs) in Southeast Indiana, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is again extending the public comment period on the issue to Feb. 28, 2005.

The FAA, which has received more than 100 public comments so far, continues to work on a non-rulemaking action to publish four new MOAs associated with the Atterbury Range airspace complex and four new MOAs associated with the Jefferson Range airspace complex. The United States Air Force developed the MOAs and requested the non-rulemaking action from the FAA.

All parties who could be affected by the airspace changes can send comment letters to the following address:

Federal Aviation Administration
Central Terminal Operations
Attn: Manager, Airspace Branch (AGL-530)
2300 Devon Avenue, Room 274
