Press Release: United States Air Force
MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – An Army exercise involving aviation assets will be conducted October 28-29 on military training areas at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., and in the vicinity of the surrounding communities.
The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky., along with flying units from Moody AFB, will conduct a flight training exercise to maintain proficiency of pilots and air crews.
Local community members should expect periods of increased air traffic, including helicopters and airplanes, low-flying aircraft, and increased aircraft noise.
This is a routine exercise, conducted periodically to maintain a high level of 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.
Moody Air Force Base and the Army Special Operations community are 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.
The Soldiers of the 160th SOAR have been continuously deployed in support of overseas contingency operations in multiple locations for more than 11 years. Exercises such as this enable Soldiers to operate in every possible environment and sustain proficiency on every piece of equipment they may be required to use in combat.
For more information about the training exercise, please contact the 23d Wing Public Affairs Office at 229-257-4146 or 229-257-4140.
