EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- During the coming weeks, Edwards will be using a low-flying civilian helicopter as part of the second phase of its site evaluation for the areas on base identified as non-operational ranges -- the occupied areas of the base and their immediate surroundings.

This action is part of the base's effort to comply with the Air Force's Military Munitions Response Program and is a cooperative effort with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The helicopter will make passes as low as five feet off the ground to complete a geophysical magnetometer survey. These low passes will be made only over areas of undeveloped desert, and the helicopter will stay well away from buildings and power lines.
