Military Operating Area (MOA) Coordinates


All co-ordinates are in Long-Lat format so you can plot them on a map for yourself if you have not got a military chart handy.

This page describes the various Military Operating Areas found in Eastern California and adjoining Nevada. These are used primarily during Air Warrior and various exercises out of the airfields in this area.

MOA DEFINITIONS BY LATITUDE/LONGITUDE and ALTITUDES. Altitudes and specific exceptions are noted beneath the airspace descriptions. The MOAs exclude the airspace as described for the airports listed under each of the following MOA descriptions.
