Field Carrier Landing Practice operations are scheduled for next week

(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)– Aircraft carrier-based flight training for aircraft stationed at NAS Whidbey Island are scheduled to occur at Ault Field Tuesday through Thursday Sept. 19-22. Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) operations are scheduled to occur at the Outlying Field (OLF) in Coupeville Monday through Thursday Sept. 18- 22.

People living in local communities should remain aware that the aforementioned operations are not the only operations out of NAS Whidbey Island, particularly at Ault Field, which is a 24-hour-a-day operational facility. There are many other training evolutions that people may hear. However the aircraft carrier flight training operations are types of operations that involve lower altitude flight training in close vicinity to the airfield.

Both runways at Ault Field are now open.
