UPDATE: Field Carrier Landing Practice operations are now scheduled for late morning and early afternoon on Tuesday, June 13.

Field Carrier Landing Practice operations for aircraft stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island are scheduled to occur in the late afternoon and then late night at the Outlying Field in Coupeville, Monday, June 12 through Wednesday, June 14.

No aircraft carrier-based flight training for aircraft stationed at NAS Whidbey Island is scheduled to occur at Ault Field.

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. The base will make every effort to let the community know if there are additions to published schedules.

Comments, including noise complaints can be directed to NAS Whidbey Island’s comment line at 360-257-6665, or to comments.NASWI@navy.mil
