Flight pattern change at NAS Pax River due to runway repairs

News Release, NAS Pax River PIO

NAVAL AIR STATION PATUXENT RIVER, Md. – Communities surrounding the naval air station may notice changes in flight patterns and increased noise levels from August 19th until early November 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, Md.

As with all operations, NAS Patuxent River takes precautions to lessen the impact of testing activities on the community. For more noise-related information call 1-866-819-9028.

For general information about the air station, please call the operator at 301-342-3000 or the public affairs office at 301-757-6748.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
