Operating from airfields such as RAAF Base Learmonth is an essential capability for 79SQN to be able to fulfil its mission to conduct both Introductory Fighter Course and support other elements of the Australian Defence Force organisation.
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.
