In Yokota: Civil-Military Use of U.S. Bases in Japan, authors Dr. Patrick M. Cronin, CNAS Senior Advisor and Senior Director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program; Paul S. Giarra, President of Global Strategies & Transformation; Zachary M. Hosford, CNAS Research Associate; and Timothy A. Walton, Associate of Delex Consulting, Studies, and Anlalysis argue that the United States and Japan should strongly consider making Yokota Air Base available for civilian aviation while still preserving military readiness and enhancing operational capacity. They contend that opening Yokota for dual-use could be mutually beneficial for the United States and Japan, and both nations should press forward by developing specific proposals for shared use and assessing their respective costs and benefits.
