Residents of Medowie, Salt Ash and Tanilba Bay can expect up to two aircraft to operate in a consistent pattern for the duration of any training activity.
These flying activities are highly dependent on weather and operational considerations, and specific dates and times within the window will be determined to best meet capability objectives.
All flying 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. Participating aircraft will operate with a view to minimising the impact on the local communities.
