This year, we are excited to provide weekly information we are calling MAC Facts. Every week the Community Relations Office will post interesting facts about the Metropolitan Airports Commission, our system of airports or aviation in general. These MAC Facts will be posted on our news page at macnoise.com/news. Periodically, MAC Facts will be summarized into a news article and distributed via email. We hope you enjoy this information and we look forward to what we will learn together this year!
