Late-night military helicopter flights over downtown Los Angeles this week are part of training exercises to familiarize military personnel with urban settings and prepare them for future assignments overseas, authorities said.

The notice says the exercises started June 15 and are scheduled to end Saturday, and that they will occur throughout Los Angeles.
