Ft. Wainwright Helicopters To Conduct Night-Flying Training
A Fort Wainwright based helicopter unit will be conducting night fly exercises later this month. The Army Aviation Task Force training is scheduled to run two weeks beginning August 18th. US Army Alaska-North Deputy Chief of Public Affairs Captain Patrick Sawicki says deployments, training and support missions have prevented this training from happening locally in the recent years. He says the 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. helicopter operations will be conducted on Fort Wainwright as well as in the Yukon Training areas southeast of Fairbanks and the Donnelly Training area near Delta Junction.
