Details
Hawk 127 Lead-In-Fighter aircraft from No. 76 SQN will conduct diversion training into RAAF Base Richmond.
 
The aircraft will be conducting instrument approach, ‘touch and go’ landings between 9am and 2pm and then departing to the north to return to RAAF Base Williamtown. 
 
Diversion and Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach training is an essential part of pilot training on fast-jet aircraft as it assists pilots to land at different airfields in all weather conditions. 
 
Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military activity, and Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the Hawkesbury community during these training activities.
