Upcoming Army aviation training to include night operations

A U.S. Army aviation unit from Hawaii will conduct night flight operations at Los Alamitos Army Airfield (LAAAF) on Joint Forces Training Base from Jan. 14 thru Jan. 31.

The visiting unit is staging at LAAAF while supporting soldiers training at the National Training Center near Barstow. The training is designed to maintain overall operational readiness and proficiency of the soldiers in the air and on the ground and will include periods of increased air traffic.

Residents living near Joint Forces Training Base may hear aircraft arriving and departing outside of normal airfield operating hours and increased aircraft noise during the hours of darkness.

Efforts will be taken to minimize inconvenience to our neighbors during the training.
