Low-level flying of helicopters to occur throughout Nova Scotia during military exercise

The Department of Natural Resources is advising the public that low-level flying will occur throughout the province over the next week. 

The department says helicopters will be flying low in support of military exercises between April 24th-28th. 

Helicopters that may be viewed by the public include Royal Canadian Air Force CH-146 Griffon helicopters, an RCMP ASTAR-350 helicopter, and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters from the United States. 

The department also says none of the aircraft will be armed and that these flights are being conducted as part of Exercise Staunch Maple 17, which aims to practice a whole of government response to a significant national crisis.
