MCAS Miramar: Field (aircraft) Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) scheduled this week Dec 20-23, 2021


From the Community Plans and Liaison Office: Miramar will be conducting Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLPs) starting Monday, December 20 and continuing through December 23, 2021. The airfield is scheduled to be closed from late Thursday, December 23 and is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, December 28 with FCLP operations continuing through the end of the week. There will be both day and night time flight operations, but they should be finishing up by 8 PM. Those who live or work adjacent to MCAS Miramar may experience increased flight activity.

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 aircraft carrier landings must be routinely practiced by pilots of all experience levels to maintain the requisite level of proficiency.
