Flight Operations schedule change at NAS Whidbey Island

(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)– There is a change to the published flight training schedule at NAS Whidbey Island for Wednesday Thursday and Friday, September 13, 14 and 15 respectively. There will be aircraft carrier-based training at Ault Field Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night. Field Carrier Landing Practice is not scheduled at the Outlying Landing Field Friday afternoon.

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.
