Changes to a major military training range in Alaska has been approved by Alaska’s top Army and Air Force officials. The changes are meant to reduce interactions with civilian pilots near Delta Junction.

The training range will consist of 65,000 square miles of airspace, nearly 2,500 square miles of land and 42,000 square nautical miles in the Gulf of Alaska.

One of the major changes involves the Air Force moving its southern boundary about 20 nautical miles north, which addresses concerns raised by locals about planes in the area.

No immediate changes will be made to the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex (JPARC) until officials can determine the best technical approach to these changes.
