Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) CF-18 Hornet fighter jets will be conducting training off Nova Scotia until Nov. 30, between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. AST.
The training will take place at various altitudes over water and most activity will not be visible to the public. However, the public in the exercise area may hear and see the fighters flying in close proximity to a military or military-contracted aircraft, military air-to-air refuelling aircraft, and military ships.
Additionally, the public may hear and see the fighters as they transit to and from their deployed operating base here at 14 Wing Greenwood.
Exercise Amalgam Dart is a Canadian Region (CANR) led NORAD exercise that deploys Canadian Forces assets to conduct air operations from other operating bases. The aircraft practice NORAD intercept and identification procedures used in the event of responding to a potential air threat, as well as air-to-air refuelling procedures. It also includes training with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) to further enhance interoperability and effectiveness between the RCN and CANR.
