Australian Defence Force helicopter activities

Australian Defence Force helicopters will conduct increased flying activities in North Sydney, Wollstonecraft, Richmond, Appin and Holsworthy between 26 June and 30 June 2023.

The training will include ADF helicopters flying by day and night in urban areas.

This is a routine activity and the community should not be alarmed if they see or hear a military helicopter. No ammunition will be used during the training.

This essential training is vital to maintain Australia’s world-class military capability. All aircraft activities are conducted within strict safety and operational guidelines.

The flying activity schedule is subject to change, including short notice cancellation, due to variables such as air traffic control, weather and other aviation considerations.

Safety, noise management and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of Defence flying activities.

Noise disturbances will be minimised where possible and the ADF thanks the community for their patience and cooperation.

Members of the public can access further information regarding aircraft noise at, or by calling 1800 033 200.
