Repairs at Pax Change Flight Patterns

Night Flights

Communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Patuxent River may notice changes in flight patterns and increased noise levels from now until summer 2019 while the air station conducts runway repairs.

Repair work requires a runway to be temporarily closed resulting in increased usage of the remaining open runways. Communities that will notice increased noise levels due to changes in flight patterns include Cedar Cove, the Lexington Park area south of the installation, Solomons Island, Lusby, and California, Maryland.

As with all operations, NAS Patuxent River takes precautions to lessen the impact of testing activities on the community.

For more information call the toll-free noise hotline number at 1-866-819-9028.
