Special notification of Helicopter Operations at Altcar Training Camp


Altcar Training Camp will host an military aviation exercise from Sunday 19th July until Friday 24th July 2020.  Up to 8 helicopters, including Chinook, Merlin and Wildcat will operate daily between approximately 1200 hours – 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.
