Abstract
The traditional air training areas of 4 Wing are facing increased encroachment from external sources, primarily natural resource interests, who desire access to the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range (CLAWR). The military usage of the CLAWR and associated airspace was examined in an attempt to quantify the impact on training of access by external agencies onto the CLAWR. This study found that the 3.5 nm buffer zone effectively doubles the size of the "no drop" area. The impact depends on a multitude of factors, including the locations, sizes and arrangement of the areas occupied by non-DND agencies, the timing fo the access and whether it is permanent, seasonal or sporadic and the restrictions imposed on training as a result of the access.
