Helicopter flying low on Friday may cause significant noise

19 Wing Comox is warning the public that a low-flying Cormorant helicopter will be flying near the airfield Friday morning, potentially causing significant noise to nearby residents.

Those living nearby can expect to see and hear the helicopter performing various low-level flight manoeuvres from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weather permitting.

This test is being done to ensure the safe operation of visual navigational aids at the airfield.

Low-level flying will create noise in the area and residents are thanked for their patience and understanding while 19 Wing performs the testing.
