Field Carrier Landing Practice Schedule Change at the NAS Whidbey Island Complex for Week of April 8-14

(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND) There has been a change to the carrier-based flight training operations scheduled to occur at the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Outlying Landing Field (OLF) in Coupeville this week. There are no carrier-based flight training operations scheduled for Ault Field this week.

Additional field carrier landing practice (FCLP) has been scheduled for Friday, April 12.

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 closes for any reason, Ault Field will become the backup airfield for OLF scheduled operations.
