MCAS Miramar: Increased Air Ops expected Thursday, July 29, afternoon and night, due to FCLP training


From the MCAS Miramar Community Plans and Liaison Office: Increased flight operations are expected at MCAS Miramar on Thursday, July 29, 2021, as the Black Knights VMFA 314 F-35 squadron conducts Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP). Residents who live or work in areas adjacent to MCAS Miramar airfield may see and hear increased flight operations on Thursday afternoon and again after dark until approximately 9:30 PM.

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 aircraft 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.
