Webster Field Issues Noise Advisory

Noise

Communities surrounding the Webster Outlying Field are advised that low-altitude aircraft flight test events are scheduled to take place 9 am to 5 pm March 12 through March 18, 2022.

Communities surrounding Naval Air Station Patuxent River are advised that noise-generating testing events are scheduled to take place from 8 am to 4 pm March 16 through March 31.

Pilots at NAS PAX will be conducting Field Carrier Landing Practices.

FCLPs are simulated carrier landings conducted to prepare the pilot to land safely on an aircraft carrier. The practices consist of series of touch-and-go maneuvers, “bounces.” Airspeed, altitude and power are all precisely choreographed in order for a pilot to approach the ship within an acceptable window to land on the deck safely. FCLP training is essential for the precision and safety of our pilots and the success of their mission. Landing on an aircraft carrier is perhaps the most difficult task in military aviation. It is a highly complex and perishable skill and requires intense period of training before pilots deploy.

Residents may notice increased noise levels due to these operations.

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

For more information, call the Pax River toll-free Noise Hotline at 1-866-819-9028.
