FORT CARSON, Colo. — A United States Marine helicopter unit from North Carolina will be training in Colorado this month.

The Heavy Helicopter Squadron HMH-464, stationed out of Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina, will conduct a training exercise at Fort Carson and Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS).

The squadron will be training and testing their flight capability with the CH-53E Super Stallion aircraft.

The training will take place Jan. 27 through Feb. 8, between the hours of 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.
