Field Carrier Landing Practice Schedule at the NAS Whidbey Island Complex for Week of Jan. 11-17

(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)- There are aircraft carrier-based flight training operations scheduled to occur at the Outlying Landing Field (OLF) in Coupeville the week of January 11-17. There are no carrier-based flight training operations scheduled to occur that week at Ault Field in Oak Harbor.

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. If OLF Coupeville is unavailable for any reason, Ault Field will become the backup airfield for OLF scheduled operations.
