Navy will give Jet Schedules for Oak Harbor and San Juans

There is a monumental change in this notice for Jet Schedules!

The Navy is now trying to let the folks in Oak Harbor and the San Juans know when they will be doing FCLPs and CCAs. These are the two practices that most involve low flying aircraft. A CCA is “Controlled Carrier Approach”.

People in Oak Harbor have been asking for this notification for a LONG TIME.

THERE WILL STILL BE NORMAL LANDING AND TAKEOFFS FROM ALT FIELD.

THIS JUST TO LET FOLKS IN THE NORTH KNOW ABOUT LOW FLYING FCLPs AND CCAs LIKE WE AROUND THE OLF KNOW.

The OLF has no practice next week.

Bad news for San Juans, with only the one runway in use…
