U.S. Army at Pōhakuloa Training Area.

Military units are scheduled to conduct various types of training at the Pōhakuloa Training Area in July that may be heard or observed by the surrounding communities.

This monthly schedule is produced to alert neighbors of upcoming training activities that are louder in nature and may be heard or noticed outside the military installation.

This information is provided for general awareness and may not include all training activity; times and dates are subject to change.

July 5–11: Army helicopter gunnery
July 7–Aug. 6: Army mortar live-fire training
July 17–31: Army unmanned aerial vehicle operations
July 31–Aug. 5: Army artillery live-fire exercises

The military in Hawai‘i appreciates the understanding and continued support of its local military training. While sometimes loud, the sounds and sights of training demonstrate how the military ensures that its service members are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely.


To report concerns related to noise or training, contact the PTA Public Affairs Officer Eric Hamilton by calling (808) 969-1966 or by email.
