Navy training schedules indicate carrier-based jet fighters and other types of aircraft will be conducting training out of Naval Air Station Jacksonville July 9-21, according to the Public Affairs Office at NAS Jacksonville. Aircraft participating in the training are currently arriving on station.

Residents in neighborhoods surrounding NAS Jacksonville will notice an increase in aircraft activity and noise during this training period, said Kaylee Larocque, spokesperson at the base.

This training operation is in support of aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) and embarked Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 8 staff, which is departing Naval Station Norfolk to begin Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX).

COMPTUEX is a training evolution designed to integrate all the assets of the strike group, test their ability to carry out maritime operations, and assess deployability.

The strike group is evaluated on their performance during simulated surface and sub-surface threats, and ship movements they may encounter during a strait transit or in the vicinity of hostile waters.

USS Harry S. Truman is the eighth Nimitz-class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy, named after the 33rd president of the United States, Harry S. Truman.
