Army training activity

Helicopters of the United States Army will conduct increased flying activities in Holsworthy and Parramatta between the 7th and 25th August 2023.

The training will include 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.

This essential training is vital to maintaining interoperability with Coalition partners. 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 the Aircraft Noise webpage, or by calling 1800 033 200.
