Up to five Black Hawk helicopters will fly over a location 5 kilometres from Collie on Thursday evening, March 16.

The exercise will ensure pilots and aircrew are well trained for flying in all conditions across urban and rural areas. Flights will occur during the afternoon and evening.

 Flights will occur during the afternoon and evening generally concluding approximately 11.30 pm.

Some flight paths are necessarily lower than normal and unavoidable noise may be noticeable for short periods. Residents should not be concerned if they hear or see these activities occurring.

The training is being conducted to ensure the Australian Defence Force maintains the highest level of capability to respond, where required, to support national interests.

The ADF acknowledges that these activities may result in possible disturbances to local residents, however, wherever possible, the ADF seeks to minimise this disruption.

The ADF would like to thank the local residents and businesses for their continued support and cooperation during this important training.
