FIELD CARRIER LANDING PRACTICE SCHEDULE AT NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND COMPLEX FOR WEEK OF AUGUST 13 TO AUGUST 19, 2017

NAVAL AIR STATION WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. - Aircraft carrier-based flight training for aircraft stationed at NAS Whidbey Island is scheduled to occur at Ault Field Monday through Friday Aug. 14-18, 2017, with Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) operations scheduled at the Outlying Field (OLF) in Coupeville, Monday through Wednesday Aug. 14- 16, 2017.

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.
