    MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, NC, UNITED STATES

    Story by Cpl. Tyler J. Bolken 

    II Marine Expeditionary Force

    MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - Highlighting Cherry Point’s Warriors.

    What’s your job?

    I provide weather forecasts for the air station and pilots to use for planning. The forecasts allow the pilots to account for turbulence, icing and other weather conditions.

    What’s your favorite aspect of your job?

    The region where the air station is located experiences nearly all weather systems, making for a fast-paced work environment.


    What’s the most challenging part?

    When the summer months come along, flight traffic picks up and the air station seems to experience constant temperature changes.

    How does your job support the mission of 2nd MAW and MCAS Cherry Point?

    Pilots cannot fly without our support because of how important weather is to their flight planning.

    How does your job differ from garrison to the field?

    During a deployment the tempo tends to be faster paced, and we don’t have the luxury of all of the technology available stateside.
