Three CH-146 Griffon helicopters will be training in central Alberta over the next few days.
The Canadian Forces’ 408 Tactical Helicopter Squadron will be conducting mountain flying training around Ram Falls and the surrounding area until Saturday.
The public can expect to see the helicopters around the Ram Falls airstrip, flying as far north as Nordegg, as far south as Sundre, just west of Rocky Mountain House, and into British Columbia’s Donald area.
They planned to be in the area starting at 6 p.m. Thursday and leave by 1 p.m. Saturday.
Approximately 20 members of the squadron will be assisted by two military-patterned vehicles on the road. No guns will be used by personnel, aircraft or vehicles, says the military.
This follows training conducted in the same area June 12 to 14, with further training taking place July 23 to 25 as well as Aug. 27 to 29.
