Fighter jet drills continue until fall


F-16 and F-15 fighter jets assigned to the 144th Fighter Wing Detachment 1 are conducting flying operations out of Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos, through mid-October. Los Alamitos will be used for these flight operations while the runway at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County 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 1,000 feet and following a specific flight path.

The base thanks local residents for their continued support to military operations within the area, and it will make every effort to be conscientious members of the community.
