NAVAL AIR STATION WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. – There are aircraft carrier-based flight training operations scheduled to occur at the Outlying Landing Field (OLF) in Coupeville, Wash., the week of April 6-12, 2020. No field carrier landing practice (FCLP) are scheduled for Ault Field that week.
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. The base will make every effort to let the community know if there are additions to published schedules.
