(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)– Starting Nov. 4, aircraft from NAS Whidbey Island’s Electronic Attack Wing will ramp up Field Carrier Landing Practices at Ault Field for approximately three weeks. The base will be using either Runways 7/25 or 14/32, based upon prevailing conditions. This will be the first use of Runway 14/32 for Field Carrier Landing Practices since July. Residents living in Anacortes, other areas on Fidalgo Island and Oak Harbor communities near Ault Field should expect to hear an increase in operations while the VAQ Wing conducts these training evolutions, which are critical for training pilots to qualify for aircraft carrier operations.
