Military Airspace

Better Planning Is Needed To Meet Future Requirements Gao ID: NSIAD-87-93 March 23, 1987

GAO reviewed the military's plans for its future airspace requirements to determine whether the plans are adequate.

GAO found that: (1) a number of Air Force and Navy units have encountered airspace shortages that have decreased air crew training effectiveness and increased training costs; (2) the Department of Defense (DOD) has not provided guidance to the services in their airspace planning to ensure consistency and coordination; and (3) the services need to make comprehensive, long-range airspace plans to meet their future requirements.
