Individuals in the communities adjacent to the Pohakuloa Training Area may notice an increase in noise due to the participation of an Air Force C-17 aircraft.

The training will take place:
• Tuesday, June 7, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
• Tuesday–Thursday, June 21–23, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Aircraft times are subject to change as the training is contingent on weather that could impact visibility or safety.

The military services in Hawai‘i appreciate the community’s understanding and continued support of local service members and families.

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.
