Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP)


During field carrier landing practice (FCLP), pilots perform repetitive "touch and go" landings at airfields, which simulate landing on an aircraft carrier. FCLP is required flight training that precedes carrier landing operations and simulates, as near as practicable, the conditions encountered during carrier landing operations.

The skills required to complete carrier landings must be routing practices by pilots of all experience levels to maintain the required levels of currency and proficiency.
