(NAS WHIDBEY ISLAND)– Field Carrier Landing Practice (FLCP) operations for aircraft stationed at NAS Whidbey Island are scheduled at the Outlying Field (OLF) in Coupeville, Wash., in the afternoon of Monday, January 13, and late afternoon to early evening of Wednesday, January 15. Residents living in Coupeville and around the OLF should anticipate an increase in jet noise January 13 and 15 due to FCLP requirements 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.
