Training activity at Pohakuloa Training Area may cause an increase in noise this week.

PTA officials say an Air Force C-17 participating in activities could add to the noise levels on May 10 and May 12 between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Aircraft times are subject to change, pending weather conditions.

“While sometimes loud, the sounds of training represent how the military ensures the nation’s service members are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely,” PTA officials said Monday.

To report concerns related to noise or training, community members can call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawai’i Noise Concern Line at 656-3487 or e-mail [email protected]
