More Navy jet noise on Whidbey expected in summer
Expect an increase in late night jet noise as the summer approaches.
That’s a reminder from Whidbey Island Naval Air Station, which delivered the message in a press release this week.
NAS Whidbey Island pilots must conduct nighttime training. And because of less available darkness this time of year and into the summer, they will need to train later into the evening, sometimes until midnight or early morning.
The pilots conduct nighttime operations training in preparation for combat deployments around the world.
