No flight operations scheduled at OLF March 9-15
No Field Carrier Landing Practice (FLCP) operations for aircraft stationed at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station are scheduled to occur at the Outlying Field (OLF) in Coupeville, Wash., the week of March 9-15.
Residents living in Coupeville and around the OLF should anticipate an increase in jet noise due to practice in preparation for combat deployments around the world.
The FCLP tempo is driven by the Fleet Replacement Squadron student training curriculum and pre-deployment carrier EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler squadron flight qualifications. It can also fluctuate due to weather, maintenance and operational requirements.
The Navy's OLF at Coupeville is a critical national security asset that provides essential training for Navy pilots based at NAS Whidbey Island to conduct safe and effective aircraft carrier flight operations around the world.
