NAS Pensacola

NAS Pensacola.

1. Forrest Sherman Field

a. Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC) require ceilings and visibility of 1000'-3nm. 

b. The Operations Duty Officer (ODO) will implement the Aircraft Wet Runway Recovery Bill when necessary.  This requires all TRAWING SIX T-2C aircraft to make arrested landings. 

Criteria for implementing the Aircraft Wet Runway Recovery Bill include:
      - Standing water on runway,
      - Wet runway with a crosswind component that exceeds 15 knots, or
      - Hydroplaning/poor braking action experienced during normal landing.

2. At NAS Pensacola Weapons Division, all magazines are closed and ordnance issuing is suspended when T1 is set.

3. NAS Pensacola Contract Fuel Branch discontinues fuel handling operations when electrical storms are within 5 miles of the field. The NAVTRAMETOCFAC FDO monitors the NEXRAD and LPATS located within the operational spaces.  Together, these systems provide accurate lightning strike direction and distance information and are superb tools for determining fueling operations recommendations for the ODO.  The ODO determines when fueling operations will commence or cease.

4. Unless ordered by the Air Operations Officer or higher authority, NAS Pensacola Port Operations Division shall dispatch no boat from the boat basin when Small Craft Warnings are in effect (NASPINST 9820.1).  Additionally, Small Craft Warnings stop all Sea Survival Training.

5. The NAS Pensacola Recreation Department is greatly affected by T1, which will close most outdoor activities, especially the swimming pools and beach areas.  Small Craft, Gale or Storm Warnings stop all boating at both the Sailing Facility and Sherman Cove Marina.
