Hanscom Field Advisory Commission (HFAC) met September 17th to discuss matters of concern at the airfield and to hear Massport updates on flight operations, aviation noise levels, capital projects, and development.
Discussions included: making HFAC information more accessible to the public; recent increases in early morning jet departures; a sharp uptick in volume of small aircraft traffic during summer months; flight instructor logs; and mysteriously high sound levels recorded by the Massport noise monitor at Bedford’s DeAngelo Drive.
The Bedford Citizen is proud to announce that it has been accepted for membership by the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN), a network of more than 230 nonprofit newsrooms producing journalism in the public interest.
