“This flights are scheduled to occur between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. No weekend flights are scheduled at this time,” the U.S. Army Europe said on Twitter.

These flights will adhere to standard noise abatement procedures.

Since April 2014, U.S. Army Europe has led the Department of Defense’s Atlantic Resolve land efforts by bringing units based in the U.S. to Europe for nine months at a time.

Atlantic Resolve provides these rotational units with the ability to build readiness, increase interoperability and enhances the bond between ally and partner militaries through multinational training events. There are three types of Atlantic Resolve rotations – armored, aviation and sustainment task force.
