NAS Pax River to conduct noise-generating tests this week

Communities surrounding the naval air station are advised that noise-generating testing events are scheduled to take place June 17 – June 20, 2019 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.

Tests at NAS PAX will involve the launching of two aerial targets; one aerial target is scheduled to be launched per day and the surrounding communities may hear a loud noise for approximately 10 seconds.

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 at 1-866-819-9028.
