MCAS Miramar: Increased Air Ops expected Wednesday, Thursday, Friday due to FCLP training

Share

Increased flight operations are expected at MCAS Miramar this week as the Black Knights F-35 squadron conducts Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, April 7-9, 2021. Residents who live or work in areas adjacent to MCAS Miramar airfield may see and hear increased flight operations.

During Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP), pilots perform repetitive “touch and go” landings at Miramar airfield to simulate landing on an aircraft carrier. FCLP is required flight training that precedes carrier landing operations and simulates, as near as practicable, the conditions encountered during carrier landing operations. The skills required to complete carrier landings must be routinely practiced by pilots of all experience levels to maintain the requisite level of proficiency.
