PC-21 conducts night flying in support of Joint Terminal Attack Course

Up to two Royal Australia Air Force Pilatus PC-21 aircraft from No. 4 Squadron will conduct night flying in support of the Australian Defence Force Joint Terminal Attack Course training in areas from Bulahdelah to Oyster Cove in Port Stephens from 27 June – 01 July 2022.

4SQN pilots will reduce their noise footprint by lateral and vertical separation as much as they can. This training is to support essential ADF JTAC currency training and as such must be conducted.

All low level flying activities are conducted within strict safety and operational guidelines.

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.

Further information about the Pilatus PC-21 can be found on our Technology page.

Imagery of the Pilatus PC-21 is available on the Defence Image Gallery.
