Black Hawk Helicopter training activity


16th Aviation Brigade will be conducting a training activity with three Black Hawk

helicopters around the Brisbane area.



Helicopters will lift off from the vicinity of Gallipoli Barracks, Enoggera and will travel

east, fly down the Brisbane River, over the Brisbane City CBD and return to Gallipoli



Thursday 28 October 2010 between 9.30am and 2.30pm (Brisbane time)

Friday 29 October 2010 between 9.30am and 2.30pm (Brisbane time)

Saturday 30 October 2010 between 9.30am and 2.30pm (Brisbane time)


Three Black Hawk helicopters have recently returned from support activities at Exercise Hamel west of

Townsville and will be conducting further training in Brisbane over a three day period. 

Although disruption should be minimal, residents in suburbs surrounding Enoggera may experience

aircraft noise when the helicopters lift off and touch down. 

Exercise HAMEL is currently being conducted at the High Range Training Area, west of Townsville and

is the most complex training activity ever undertaken by the Australian Army and will involve around

6000 soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen.

Media Note: Media are not invited to any events but their assistance is sought in notifying local residents

of potential aircraft noise.
