144th Fighter Wing announces temporary flights outs of JFTB

F-16 and F-15 fighter jets assigned to the 144th Fighter Wing Detachment 1 will conduct flying operations out of Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos, from Aug. 1 through mid-October. Los Alamitos will be utilized for these flight operations while the runway at March Air Reserve Base undergoes construction.

Two training flights per week are currently planned from Los Alamitos to maintain pilot proficiency and to meet pilot training requirements. Every effort will be made to reduce aircraft noise by following noise mitigation procedures during training operations. These include reduced engine thrust at altitudes below 1000 feet and by following a specific
flight path.

We thank local residents for their continued support to military operations within the area, and we will make every effort to be conscientious members of the community.

For more information, please contact the 144th Fighter Wing Public Affairs Office at (559) 454-5246 or via email at [email protected]

For local noise concerns, please contact Joint Forces Training Base at (562) 795-2515.
