The Stinger Temporary Military Operations Area (MOA) is established in northwest Ohio in support of Exercises Killer Bee I thru Killer Bee IV. The exercises are designed to create a high operations tempo environment and test pilots and maintenance personnel to demonstrate increased aircraft utilization/generation rates with aircraft that do not have external fuel tanks installed, as well as enhanced maintenance capabilities while quick-turning aircraft following the return from a long-term deployment.

The Stinger Temporary MOA will be used by pilots for conducting basic fighter maneuvering (BFM) and air combat maneuvering (ACM) training activities. The exercises will be conducted from the Toledo Air National Guard Base located in Swanton, Ohio, with a maximum of 8 sorties per day during the exercises. All participating exercise aircraft will be F-16 fighters and activities will occur between 6,000 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL) to, but not including Flight Level 180 (FL180).

The Stinger Temporary MOA will only be activated for aircraft participating in Exercises Killer Bee I through Killer Bee IV, respectively. Aerial activities will include aggressive three-dimensional tactical combat maneuvering involving abrupt, unpredictable changes in altitude, attitude, and direction of flight by participating aircraft. Supersonic flight is not authorized in the Stinger Temporary MOA; however, chaff and flare countermeasures will be employed with a minimum altitude of 10,000 feet MSL.

Nonparticipant pilots are encouraged to contact the nearest flight service station and request the latest NOTAM information or contact Cleveland Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) for the status of the Stinger Temporary MOA.
