Field Carrier Landing Practice aboard MCAS Beaufort
MARINE CORPS AIR STATION BEAUFORT, S.C. (July 20, 2017) – Fixed-wing aircraft from MCAS Beaufort will conduct field carrier landing practice (FCLP) on the air station from Sunday July 23 to Thursday July 27.
Flight operations are expected to increase during the scheduled time of training.
Sunday, July 23, FCLP periods are scheduled between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Monday through Wednesday, July 24 - 26, FCLP periods are scheduled between the hours of 6:15 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
Thursday, July 27, FCLP periods are scheduled between the hours of 9 a.m. -
Training hours normally adjust during summer months due to the daylight savings shift, which reduces the amount of hours squadrons can conduct required training at night. The scheduled training is a normal occurrence in order to maintain operational readiness and times are subject to change due to weather and operational requirements.
We’d like to thank the community for their patience and understanding as we train in order to maintain a high state of readiness so we are prepared when the nation calls.
Updates will be posted to our website and Facebook site.
