Night Flight Luke Air Force Base

Luke Air Force Base is scheduled to conduct night flying throughout the month of May, 2015.

The evening flights are scheduled to occur Monday through Thursday until approximately 11:30 p.m. each day. Night flights are not scheduled after 6:30 p.m. on Fridays. No flying of any type is scheduled for Saturdays, Sundays or May 22 through 25, in conjunction with the Memorial Day weekend.

Nighttime flight training is an integral phase for students. Learning this critical skill over Arizona’s skies ensures the pilots’ safety and mission success while supporting combat operations around the world.

While Luke AFB reserves the right to fly 24 hours a day if needed, the base has been successful in minimizing late-night flights to reduce the impact on West Valley and neighboring communities.
