Flight Operations and Noise Concerns


Flight Operations at Naval Air Station Oceana and Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress are conducted around the clock seven days a week. The airspace that Oceana normally operates in covers a 4.3-mile radius and like civilian aircraft, there is not an established limitation to where military aircraft can fly.

There are no curfews.  In fact, a significant portion of training is required to occur at night.  Flight training is tied to aircraft carrier schedules.  This can result in multiple squadrons preparing for sea at the same time.  

There are noise abatement procedures in place.  These include restricting the use of afterburner, raising flight patterns, and requiring only straight-in approaches after 10:00 p.m.

If you have a noise concern, you can contact the Flight Operations and Noise Concerns department at 

(757) 433-2162 or email: and provide the following information:

·        Date

·        Time

·        Name

·        Address

·        City/State/Zip code

·        Neighborhood

·        Nature of your complaint

NOTE:  Comments will not affect air operations as they are being conducted.
