The U.S. Army announces that military units are scheduled to conduct various types of training at the Pōhakuloa Training Area (PTA) in March 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.

  • Friday through Sunday, March 2, to 4, 2018 the Army will be conducting mortar live-fire training.
  • Thursday, March 1, and from Monday, March 5, to Friday, March 30, Marines and Army will conduct helicopter gunnery training.

The military appreciates the understanding and continued support of local Hawai‘i Island communities.

While sometimes loud, this training is critical to ensure that military units and service members are ready to accomplish their mission and return home safely.


To report concerns related to noise or training, contact PTA Public Affairs Officer Eric Hamilton, either by calling (808) 969-2411 or emailing [email protected].
