Republic Airport Issues Noise Alert: Military jets to operate from Republic Airport as part of bicentennial observances of the War of 1812

Military jets at Republic Airport.

As part of the planning for a national bicentennial observance of the War of 1812 on April 1 and 2, Republic Airport will be hosting two F-18 jets from the US Navy's precision demonstration team.

The Blue Angels will touch down at Republic Airport on Sunday and then take off for a familiarization flight over New York Harbor during Monday.

Their activities are expected to produce the type of noise expected from military aircraft applying full power for takeoff.

Children should be informed of the aircraft’s arrival and purpose so that they are not startled by their arrival into the region, the jet noise they will produce or their anticipated flights to and from New York City.

“As always, we welcome these aircraft and what they represent, offering a powerful tribute to the men and women who continue to defend our freedoms,” stated Airport Director Michael Geiger. 

During their stay, the Blue Angel F-18’s will be based at SheltAir Aviation, located along New Highway on the north east side of the airport.
