Kingstonians may notice some not-so-common aircraft flying over the city this coming Sunday, but it’s nothing to be alarmed at, according to the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC).

On Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, there will be a “brief increase in Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) aircraft traffic over Kingston” as part of professional development activities for Officer Cadets of the Royal Military College of Canada, RMC said in a press release on Friday, Feb. 8.

The activities will take place at approximately 2 p.m when a CH-146 Griffon helicopter and a CC-130H Hercules aircraft from 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron, 8 Wing Trenton, will be conducting a simulated search and rescue mission over the RMC campus.

“Flights by RCAF aircraft are carefully planned and closely controlled for public safety,” RMC said in the press release. “Of note, the professional development activities are not open to the public or media outlets.”
