Summer artillery practice, low helicopter flights
Residents in the Hudson Highlands should expect noise through mid-August from training activities for West Point cadets at Camp Buckner and Lake Frederick. Training include infantry operations, artillery firing, weapons training, aviation operations, military engineering projects, training in field communications, demolitions and survival skills techniques.
Noise levels will be sporadic with increased activity associated with Air Assault School in June and during specialized training operations in July. Residents can expect to see and hear low-flying helicopters in and around the training and cantonment areas.
The training will not affect West Point recreation areas but may impact certain fishing and hunting locations. The training is designed to simulate the physical and mental challenges cadets will face when they become officers in the U.S. Army.
