MCAS Miramar issues Noise Advisory: Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP) scheduled Nov 16 to Nov 23, 2022


Update 11/16/2022: During Santa Ana wind conditions, aircraft approaching MCAS Miramar airfield may approach and land from west to east. This may result in an increase in flights over the community areas surrounding the airfield. This will continue until wind conditions change.

From MCAS Miramar Facebook @MCASMiramarCA: Noise Advisory! Eyes up for our aircraft Wednesday, November 16 through Wednesday, November 23, 2022. Noise levels around base may be higher than usual as our aircraft will be performing aircraft carrier landing practice in order to maintain readiness. We thank you for your support.

Community members should expect both day and night time flight operations. 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 aircraft carrier landing operations and simulates, as near as practicable, the conditions encountered during aircraft carrier landing operations. The skills required to complete aircraft carrier landings must be practiced by pilots of all experience levels to maintain the requisite level of proficiency.
