PATUXENT RIVER, Md.- The Patuxent River Naval Air Station is advising nearby communities they will be having noise-generating testing events from March 26 - 29, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. 

Pilots at NAS Patuxent River will be conducting Field Carrier Landing Practices.

FCLPs are simulated carrier landings conducted to prepare the pilot to land safely on an aircraft carrier. 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.

NAS Patuxent River says FCLP training is essential for the precision and safety of the nation's military men and women and the success of their mission. Pilots say it is a highly complex skill that requires an intense period of training before pilots deploy and residents may notice increased noise levels due to these operations. 

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