The results of a condition survey and friction measurements on the runways at the U.S. Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island, Washington are presented. The survey established statistically-based condition numbers weighted defect densities which were direct indicators of the condition of the individual pavement facilities. The runway friction measurements showed the aircraft hydroplaningskidding potential of the field. Also, a condition survey of the runway at the U.S. Naval Outlying Field, Coupeville is reported. The results of the condition surveys show that the pavement condition is almost unchanged since the last condition survey in 1970. Friction measurements show that the runways at NAS Whidbey Island have satisfactory frictional resistance.
