This page will provide updates from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island regarding flight and training schedules that may affect jet noise in the San Juan Islands.  Please note that NASWI reserves the right to changes its flight and training schedules at any time.  The most recent notice is posted below.

WHY AM I HEARING JET NOISE WHEN NOTHING IS SCHEDULED?  From the Navy: "People living in local communities should remain aware that the operations scheduled below (or not) are not the only operations out of NAS Whidbey Island, particularly at Ault Field, which is a 24-hour-a-day operational facility. There are many other training evolutions that people may hear. However, the aircraft carrier flight training operations are types of operations that involve lower altitude flight training in close vicinity to the airfield." FRANKLY, WE WONDER WHY WE EVEN BOTHER TO POST THESE SCHEDULES PUBLISHED BY THE NAVY; THEY RARELY CONFORM TO REALITY.

Please use San Juan County's Aircraft Noise Reporting Website to report jet noise that is bothering you. This data is analyzed frequently and reported to elected officials. Copies of those reports are available here.
