The aircraft will conduct instrument approaches and touch-and-go landings in three waves during nominated times.
Instrument landing system approach training is an essential part of pilot training on fast-jet [or pretty much any] aircraft as it assists pilots to land at different airfields in all weather conditions.
DATE: Wednesday, 26 February 2020
TIME: Between 10am and 12 noon and between 2pm and 4pm
VENUE: RAAF Base Richmond
The date and time for this activity are subject to variables such as weather and operational availability, and may change.
RAAF requests that enthusiasts do not call RAAF Base Richmond directly for updated timings.
“Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military activity, and Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the Hawkesbury community during these training activities,” a RAAF statement read.
