Training for the month of October will involve several hundred Soldiers and Marines, home-based on Oahu. Training includes small arms, helicopter gunnery, mortar gunnery, and aviation training including the use of unmanned aerial systems.

Residents of Hawaii Island can expect to see or hear military aircraft supporting this

training including Marine helicopters, and tilt-rotor aircraft (MV-22) commonly known as

Osprey. When training increases, PTA Public Affairs will send out a community notice as

a courtesy.

There are “tentative” convoys scheduled for October, and PTA Public Affairs will alert

the community once firm dates and times are known to assist in planning local travel.

As a reminder, the scoping period for the PTA Environmental Impact Statement

concludes on Oct. 14, and comments on the scope (what should be studied) of the EIS

should be submitted to

On behalf of Lieutenant Colonel JR Borce, Commander of Pohakuloa Training Area,

and Command Sergeant Major Will Gray, along with the entire PTA staff, thank you

again, for your continued support, patience, and understanding.

For more information or questions, call PTA Public Affairs at 808-969-2411.
