Noise Advisories

Marine Corps Base Air Station Cherry Point, the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing and our other tenant commands appreciate the enormous sacrifices made by our neighbors as we train for the defense of our country. Among those sacrifices is the occasional disruption of daily life by the sometimes intrusive noise caused by on-base training.

The 2d Marine Aircraft Wing and the other units that call Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and the coastal North Carolina region home, train hard to be ready at a moment's notice to answer our nation's call. Sometimes this fast-paced training results in low-flying aircraft, weapons or demolition noise.

We at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point pledge to do our best to keep our neighbors informed about when and where those disruptions are likely to occur by releasing information regarding any potential noise generating events.

Please contact our dedicated noise abatement hotline with all concerns regarding noise, vibration, excessive dust, low-flying aircraft and/or maneuver damage from the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point area, by calling (252) 466-1092.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while our Marines strive to "train as they fight" every day - under the most realistic combat conditions using the best equipment and ranges available.
