Extra flying scheduled near CFB Comox

Residents near 19 Wing Comox are advised that Cormorant helicopters will fly between 5 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. from December 4 to 7 as crews conduct exercises designed to train new flight engineers in nighttime conditions.

Residents in the vicinity of the Comox Valley Airport can expect to see and hear the helicopters as they depart and return to 19 Wing. The majority of training, however, will take place outside of populated areas. The flights will take place at varying altitudes and are weather-dependent.

Residents are thanked for their patience and understanding while we train this new group of Search and Rescue aircrew.
