160th SOAR (A) Conducts Training near North Charleston

The 3rd Battalion, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and Soldiers from Hunter Army Airfield, GA, will conduct realistic flight training in the vicinity of North Charleston, SC September 17 – 18, 2014.

Local community members should expect periods of increased air traffic, including helicopters, low-flying aircraft and increased aircraft noise during this time.

This is a routine aircraft training, conducted periodically to maintain operational readiness for the military personnel involved. The safety of service members and the local community is our top priority, and every precaution will be taken to mitigate risks for the safety of all.

The Army Special Operations community is extremely sensitive to the impact such exercises have on local citizens and intend to train safely and courteously.  Every measure to reduce the amount of noise associated with the exercise will be taken.
