Runway reopens at NAS Whidbey
Runway 14/32 at Ault Field has reopened following the installation of a new arresting gear system. The runway was closed Aug. 5.
Aircraft that use Runway 14/32 take off and land heading either northwest or southeast. These approaches and departures will have flights going over eastern Oak Harbor, northern Camano Island, Anacortes and other parts of Fidalgo Island.
Now that both runways at Ault Field are open, there should be fewer flights using runway 7/25 which has landing approaches and departures with flights over western Skagit County, Mount Vernon, the La Conner area, northern Island County and Lopez Island.
Field Carrier Landing Practice or touch-and-go operations at Outlying Field Coupeville remain temporarily suspended until the end of the calendar year. Touch-and-gos will continue at Ault Field which impact other aircraft operations.
