Communities surrounding the naval air station are advised that noise-generating night-time testing events are scheduled to take place March 19 and 20, 2018, between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. each evening. Pilots at PAX will be testing and training for realistic night flight scenarios that are essential for the precision and safety of our military men and women and the success of their mission. Residents may notice increased noise levels due to these operations.

NAS Patuxent River appreciates residents’ understanding and will continue to take precautions to lessen the impact of flight operations on the community. For more information call the toll-free Noise Hotline 1-866-819-9028.
