Hanscom Field Advisory Commission Meeting

June 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

HFAC is a State Legislature-created advisory commission that serves as a conduit between the communities surrounding Hanscom Field and Massport.  The commission meets monthly to receive and discuss updates from Massport on flight operations, air noise, and airfield development projects.  It also hears and discusses residents’ questions and concerns relating to Hanscom Field.  The public is always welcome to attend meetings and is invited to participate during the Citizens’ Comments period.

In addition to the regular agenda on June 15, there will be a special presentation by Chris McCann, former USAF U-2 test pilot and the inventor of the Airnoise button, a small Wi-Fi device that automatically files a detailed air noise complaint to the nearest airport authority when clicked.

Chair Eliot will also continue an ongoing chapter by chapter review of Massport’s most recent environmental review, the 2017 L.G. Hanscom Field Environmental Status and Planning Report.  For June, the commission will cover Chapter Two:  Facilities and Infrastructure. The full agenda is below:
