Australian Defence Force activity

An Australian Defence Force helicopter will be operating around the Sunshine Coast coastline and at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex, Queensland in support of the ADF Careers Expo on 18 November 2023.

The public should not be alarmed if they see or hear a military helicopter.

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 public for their patience and cooperation.

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