Special notification of Helicopter Operations at Altcar Training Camp


Altcar Training Camp will host an military aviation exercise from Saturday 17th July until Friday 23rd July 2021.  Up to 10 helicopters will operate daily until around 0330 hours.

In order to meet all training objectives the aircrew are required to achieve a number of night sorties; unfortunately during the summer months and the later hours of darkness, this necessity means flying through to the early hours of the morning.  Aircraft routing in and out of Altcar Camp has been planned to minimise disruption as far as possible and the continued support of the Hightown and Formby community is very much appreciated during this essential training.
