C-17A Globemaster III low level flying activity (NSW)

Exercise Global Dexterity is conducted twice a year, with hosting duties rotating between 535th Airlift Squadron and RAAF 36 Squadron. The exercise was last held in May 2022 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor – Hickam.

Flying is subject to change due to variables such as air traffic control requirements, weather and other aviation considerations.

Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying. Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the community during these training activities.
