Military units are scheduled to conduct various types of training at Pōhakuloa on Hawai‘i Island in April 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.

April 22–May 26: Army maneuver and mounted live-fire exercises
April 24–25: Marines live-fire exercise
April 26–May 6: Army helicopter gunnery
April 24–May 15: Army artillery live-fire exercise

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.
