  • 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. June 14-16 from PTA to Kawaihae.

The training schedule is subject to change based on safety, weather and other environmental factors. Weather, such as overcast conditions, can increase noise and vibrations. Should individuals hear noise, there is no immediate danger.

Unmanned aircraft systems training also can occur 24 hours a day, seven days a week at PTA in the restricted airspace.
