Army helicopter training over Sydney, Wollongong and Nowra regions
Up to five Black Hawk helicopters will fly over the Sydney, Wollongong and Nowra regions during the period 2 to 30 June 2017 as part of a Defence training exercise.
The exercise will ensure Australian Defence Force (ADF) pilots and aircrew are well trained for flying in all conditions across urban and rural areas.
Flights will occur during the afternoon and evening, generally often concluding by approximately 11:.30 pm.
Some flight paths are necessarily lower than normal and unavoidable noise may be noticeable heard for short periods. Residents should not be concerned if they hear or see these activities occurring.
The training is being conducted to ensure the Australian Defence Force (ADF) maintains the highest level of capability to respond, where required, to support national interests.
The ADF acknowledges that these activities may result in possible disturbances to local residents, however, wherever possible, the ADF seeks to minimise this disruption.
The ADF would like to thank the local residents and businesses for their continued support and cooperation during this important training.
