Field carrier landing practice schedule at NAS Whidbey Island Complex for week of Dec. 25 - Jan. 1
(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)- There are aircraft carrier-based flight training operations scheduled to occur at the Outlying Field (OLF) in Coupeville on Wednesday, December 27, Thursday, December 28, and Friday, December 29, 2017. No Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) operations are scheduled to occur at Ault Field the week of December 25, 2017 to January 1, 2018.
While there are no FCLP operations scheduled for Ault Field, the above operations are subject to change because of weather and FCLP operation calendar year limitations. The base will make every effort to let the community know if there are additions to published schedules.
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.
