USCG HH65B Dolphin crew win Defence Helicopter SAR Award 2004 

Three US Coast Guard crewman - Lt. Dale T. Taylor, Lt. William Strickland
and Petty Officer Brian Jerrit - were yesterday presented with the Defence
Helicopter SAR Award for 2004.
At a ceremony staged on the final day of Shephard's annual SAR conference
(this year in Brighton, UK) the crewmen were congratulated on their
achievement by two distinguished guest speakers, the Honourable Jerry
Jennings, deputy assistant secretary of defence for POW/missing personnel
affairs, DPMO, USA and Rear Adminal James C. Olson, director of 
operations capability USCG.
The Defence Helicopter SAR Award is presented each year to one crew
who have distinguished themselves over the past 12 months. After much
deliberation, due to the number and outstanding quality of nominations
received, the judging panel chose a rescue carried out by a US Coast Guard
HH65B Dolphin aircraft - CG6523 - out of the USCG Air Station in Savannah,
On 9 December 2003, in the late afternoon, Lt. Taylor and his two crewmen
were taxiing for takeoff on a law enforcement patrol when they were diverted
to assist a sailing vessel in distress 45 nautical miles southeast of Key West,
FL. It was reported that the sailors onboard were preparing to abandon ship.
Lt. Taylor was sitting in the left (non-hoisting) pilot seat while co-pilot Bill
Strickland was in the right (hoisting) seat.
The crew found the 27-foot sailing vessel Jada floundering against 12-15 foot
seas whipped up by 30-knot winds. Numerous failed attempts were made to
raise the stricken vessel on the radio. Lt. Taylor decided to lower the a 
hand-held radio to the sailboat and, although there was a language problem
(the sailors' first language was Danish), soon realised that both sailors felt
their lives to be in danger and wanted to get off their boat. At this point they
had been in difficulty for several hours. It appeared that the sailboat was not
being actively sailed and that it was enduring a sustained beating by the 
high seas. There were no surface vessels that could respond in a timely 
manner and darkness was fast approaching. In addition, CG 6523 had lost 
communications with Coast Guard Group Key West, restricting communications
with their SAR controller. After careful consideration, Lt. Taylor decided to hoist
the two men from the vessel.
Due to a wildly swinging 60 foot mast, it was decided to have the men don life
jackets and enter the water one at a time to be hoisted up by the basket. Soon, 
the first crewman entered the water and was hoisted uneventfully. The second 
crewman, however, proved to be much more of a challenge, being 81 years old 
and now severely weakened from the constant battered in rough seas. 
Immediately after he jumped in the water, he was swept forcefully against his
sailboat, ripping off his life jacket which then floated away. He quickly lost his
grip of the boat and drifted away from it, struggling to remain afloat. The copilot
and flight mechanic endeavoured feverishly to place the basket within arm?s reach.
As he struggled to remain afloat, the man was able to grab the basket once, only
to have it snatched away by the rough seas. It was readily apparent to the crew 
of CG 6523, as they watched him sink beneath the waves three times, that he 
would drown unless something drastic was done.
After a quick consultation with the crew, Lt. Taylor released his harness, climbed
out of his pilot seat and made his way to the cabin. Petty Officer Brian Jerrit 
had already brought the basket up and made it ready in the door. Though having
no formal rescue swimmer training and no time to prepare, Lt. Taylor climbed in 
the basket and was lowered quickly to the rough sea. He swam to the foundering
survivor and stabilised him while signalling for a basket pickup. Still battling
against the waves, he managed to get the man into the basket for a hoist to the
helicopter. After retrieval, Petty Officer Jerrit still had great difficulty in
removing the exhausted survivor from the basket as he prepared to pick up Lt.
Taylor. The basket was again lowered to the surface, where Lt. Taylor climbed in
and was hoisted back to safety.  In making their decision the judging panel, while
recognising that a crewman leaving his seat is against usual procedure, agreed that
this was an extraordinary case: the crew were watching a man drown, they assessed
the risks and Lt. Taylor acted. Both sailors are alive today because of this crew?s

EADS CASA signs contract to provide maritime patrol aircraft to U.S. Coast Guard

EADS CASA and Lockheed Martin have signed in Madrid a $87.4 million contract
that formalizes EADS CASA participation in the United States Coast Guard
Integrated Deepwater Systems (IDS) Program. 
The initial contract between Lockheed Martin and EADS CASA is for the
procurement of two CN-235 MRS MPA (Medium Range Surveillance Maritime
Patrol Aircraft). Delivery is scheduled in 2006. The contract also includes a
$4.15 million option for spare parts and integrated logistic support (ILS), as well
as an option for six additional aircraft. The potential value of the contract, with
all options exercised, is approximately $300 million. 
The Deepwater Program is a major initiative designed to recapitalize the U.S. Coast
Guard with an integrated system of assets and capabilities. The EADS CASA CN-235
MRS MPA has been selected to serve as the Maritime Patrol Aircraft platform for the
U.S. Coast Guard. The Deepwater contract was awarded in 2002 to Integrated Coast
Guard Systems (ICGS), a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Northrop
The contract was signed by Francisco Fernandez Sainz, Chairman and CEO EADS
CASA, and Fred P. Moosally, President of Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems &
Sensors in the presence of the Spanish Minister of Defense, Federico Trillo-Figueroa,
and U.S. Coast Guard Rear Admiral Patrick M. Stillman, Program Executive Officer
for the Deepwater Program. 
"We are extremely pleased that Lockheed Martin, representing the Integrated Coast
Guard Systems team, has selected the CN-235 to be their MRS Maritime Patrol
Aircraft for the U.S. Coast Guard. The size of the aircraft and range capabilities
will be very supportive of the multiple missions required of the U.S. Coast Guard --
from homeland security, to environmental protection, fisheries enforcement, drug and
migrant interdiction, and search and rescue," said Francisco Fernandez Sainz,
Chairman and CEO of EADS CASA. "This is a clear validation of the capability,
flexibility and value of the CN-235 as a surveillance platform," he added. 
"The selection of the CN-235 MRS MPA as part of the ICGS offering is also a clear
example of the benefits of transatlantic cooperation. It is another example of how
EADS brings its global capabilities together to provide valued products to U.S. 
governmental customers," declared Ralph Crosby, Chairman and CEO EADS North
America. "The CN-235 meets the operational needs of the U.S. Coast Guard and is
a cost-effective choice for the American taxpayer," he said. 
The CN-235 MRS MPA will bring to the Deepwater Program the expertise of EADS
CASA, which provides the highest quality and best value MPA in its category. EADS
CASA has built more than 250 CN-235 aircraft to date, making the aircraft a proven
and ideal platform for military and maritime patrol operations. The CN-235 Series 300
also offers multi-mission capabilities. 
The EADS CASA CN-235 MRS MPA surveillance capabilities permit detection and
identification of offshore threats. The information acquired can also be shared with 
the other assets of the C4/ISR network. 
EADS offers a complete range of military transport aircraft, including mission
aircraft: from the heavy lifter A400M now under development to the reliable and
worldwide known C-295, CN-235 and C-212. 
EADS is a global leader in aerospace, defense and related services. In 2002, EADS
generated revenues of EUR 29.9 billion and employed a workforce of more than
100,000. The EADS Group includes the aircraft manufacturer Airbus, the world's
largest helicopter supplier Eurocopter, and the joint venture MBDA, the second
largest missile producer in the global market. EADS is the major partner in the
Eurofighter consortium, is the prime contractor for the Ariane launcher, develops
the A400M military transport aircraft and is the largest industrial partner for the 
European satellite navigation system, Galileo.

A spotter in Australia reported sighting CG 6506 on the ice breaker Polar Sea
and CG 6569 and CG 6583 on the deck of ice breaker Polar Star while on
a port visit there. The ice breakers are on a joint deployment near Antarctica.

CG 1500 was monitored the past month conducting the International Ice Patrol.

CGAS Elizabeth City and CGAS Atlantic City provided aircraft for the rescue
efforts after the BOW MARINER tanker explosion and sinking last month. 
Aircraft assisting in rescue and recovery efforts were: CG 1501, CG 1502, 
CG 1503, CG 6026, CG 6031, and CG 6588.

A number of aircraft from other districts including ones from Cape Cod,
Traverse City, Clearwater, Miami, Kodiak, and Mobile have been logged
this month relocated to Borinquen, Miami, and Guantanamo Bay in
response to the migrant crisis in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.


>From a news release:
American Eurocopter Corp. said that it is negotiating a deal for an upgrade of 
the engines of 95 U.S. Coast Guard helicopters. The company is building a 
new helicopter plant in the Columbus, Miss., area. The plant would employ
140 people. AEC officials declined to discuss the dollar value of the contract
or the number of additional jobs it could create at its new plant. Since 2002, 
AEC has been the preferred bidder for a project to overhaul the Coast Guard's
fleet of HH-65 rescue helicopters. The overhaul is part of the Coast Guard's
$11 billion Deepwater program.
In June 2002, the Deepwater contract was awarded to Integrated Coast Guard
Solutions, a partnership between defense industry giants Lockheed Martin and
Northrop Grumman. Under the terms of the ICGS contract, AEC is listed as
the preferred bidder for the HH-65 upgrade. The Deepwater project also allows
ICGS and the Coast Guard to choose a different bidder if their needs change,
so the subcontract with AEC has never been officially closed.
Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Jeff Carter said the decision on who would
upgrade the HH-65 helicopter fleet was supposed to be made next year. Carter
said the helicopters, which have been in service for more than 20 years, are now
suffering an alarming number of engine failures. "It has reached a crisis proportion,"
Carter said. "What we've had to do is put flight restrictions on these helicopters
on the amount of weight that they can carry (and) the amount of time that they 
can fly."
Carter said the Coast Guard had asked ICGS to find new engines and flight
control systems for the helicopters as soon as possible. He said the helicopter
is the work horse aircraft of the Coast Guard, and its fleet of 95 HH-65s flew
nearly 7,500 hours performing search and rescue duties and over 8,000 hours
on security and law enforcement patrols last year.
Lockheed Martin spokesman Ken Ross said the Coast Guard's request had not
changed AEC's status as the proposed solution for the HH-65 upgrade project.
AEC is a fully owned subsidiary of EADS (European Aeronautic Defense & Space),
the second largest aerospace and defense conglomerate in the world.
The HH-65 helicopters were built by the French aviation company Aerospatiale,
which is now part of the Eurocopter division of EADS. The Coast Guard awarded
the contract to Aerospatiale in 1979, and the helicopters began service in the
early 1980s.

USCG Press Release Date: Feb. 09, 2004
Seven people were hoisted to safety as their 230-foot cargo vessel sank in the
Caribbean Sea 80 miles south of St. Croix, USVI, Sunday.
Sunday afternoon the U.S. Coast Guard Command Center in San Juan, Puerto
Rico received a call from French authorities on the Island of Martinique. They 
reported the cargo vessel Danbox was sinking and needed assistance.
The Coast Guard launched a Falcon Jet (HU-25) from Air Station Borinquen
on the west side of Puerto Rico to investigate and assist if needed and diverted
the Cutter Vashon.
Shortly after 7:35pm  the Danbox was located. The Coast Guard aircraft dropped
a pump to the crew of the vessel who reported the pump inoperable.  
As the situation continued to worsen, the Coast Guard Command Center called
upon a Jayhawk helicopter HH-60 to launch from Air Station Borinquen.  When the
helicopter arrived on scene, the cargo vessel was reportedly listing to port and the
crew had abandoned ship and were now in a liferaft. A Coast Guard rescue
swimmer went into the water and assisted with the hoist of all persons into the
helicopter. The survivors were reported in good condition and were met by
Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities in St Croix, Virgin Islands.
The HU-25 Falcon jet is based in Miami, Fla., currently deployed to Puerto Rico.
The HH-60 Jayhawk is based in Clearwater, Fla.., currently deployed to Puerto Rico.

>From the above release and from ALE traffic I believe the HH-60J deployed to
Borinquen is CG 6019. It appears from the logs this month that some assets
from CONUS have been relocated to Puerto Rico and Guantanamo Bay, 
probably to deal with the large number of Haitian and Dominican migrants
flooding out of their island in the past two months.

The Coast Guard and Immigration and Customs Enforcement stopped two go-fast
smuggling vessels and eight suspected smugglers that were transporting 5,600
pounds of marijuana and 100 pounds of hash between Great Inagua Island, Bahamas, 
and Cuba. Information on both vessels was received by the Coast Guard's Seventh 
District Command Center who, in conjunction with Joint Interagency Task Force South, 
coordinated the efforts of Coast Guard and ICE aircraft and boats to stop the eight
suspected smugglers.
The first case began 5:30 a.m. after a report of a northbound go-fast off the Eastern
tip of Cuba.  The second case started at 8:30 a.m. with another report of a go-fast
rounding the southeastern tip of Cuba. Coast Guard Cutters Northland and Forward, 
both based in Portsmouth, Va., and an ICE P-3 surveillance aircraft from Jacksonville, 
Fla., were diverted to intercept the vessels. The ICE aircraft located the first go-
gast at 11:49 a.m. heading north at a speed of about 40 mph in international waters.  
Suspected contraband packages were visible on the deck of the vessel.  
Northland launched its embarked MH-68 Sting Ray helicopter from the Helicopter 
Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) based in Jacksonville, Fla., and both cutters 
dispatched law enforcement teams on small boats. The HITRON helicopter intercepted
the smuggling vessel and directed it to stop.  The vessel ignored orders to stop so the
crew of the Sting Ray utilized warning shots in front of the vessel in an effort to
compel compliance.  The vessel continued to flee, therefore a sharpshooter onboard used 
disabling fire on the boats propulsion, bringing it to a stop at 12:49 p.m.
After a Coast Guard boarding team from Northland arrived, the MH-68 helicopter diverted
to intercept the second go-fast, which had been located and monitored by the ICE
aircraft.  The second smuggling vessel also refused orders to stop and began
jettisoning contraband overboard.  After firing warning shots in front of the fleeing
vessel with no effect, the sharpshooter employed disabling fire to stop the go-fast at
1:23 p.m., which was then boarded by law enforcement personnel from Forward. Three
suspected smugglers were detained on the first go-fast, one Jamaican and two Bahamian
citizens.  Coast Guard personnel reported that one person, the Jamaican, was injured
in the pursuit.  A medical technician was dispatched to treat the injuries until
arrangements could be made for a medical evacuation.  The injuries are possibly the
result of metal fragments from the disabling fire to the vessels propulsion. The
injuries were minor, however, as a precaution a Coast Guard HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter
from Air Station Clearwater transported the man to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba  He was later
transferred to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, arriving at 10:45 p.m. The suspect
has since been treated and released from the hospital and was turned over to ICE
custody for prosecution. There were another five suspected smugglers onboard the second
go-fast, four Jamaican and one Bahamian.  The seven remaining smugglers are in Coast
Guard custody, along with 2,700 pounds of marijuana and 100 pounds of hash from the
first boat and 2,900 pounds of marijuana from the second boat.


At least two MH-68 Stingray gunships were deployed to the Northeast
during the Orange Alert this month. CG 1081 and CG 1099 were logged in the area.
USCG HU-25 and HH-65s have been heavily involved in security patrols
nationwide during this alert.
CG 1503 once again deployed to Ecuador this month for drug interdiction tasking.
It appears CGAS Elizabeth City has a HC-130 forward deployed on counterdrug
ops very frequently now. CG 1502 deployed to Aruba.
Recently, hits have been received on ALE of F08 and F38 which IAW
the address usage should be CG 2108 and CG 2138. These airframes were
supposed to be at AMARC.
Thanks again to Graham Tanner for some great HH-65 updates.
There were some excellent posts this month on the mailing lists that
provided some good updates also.

Air Station Traverse City was formally commissioned in 1946. Over the years, the
station has grown to its present staff size of 28 officers, 2 warrant officers,
and 100 enlisted personnel.  The air station?s HH-65A helicopters have recently
been replaced by the B model with its upgraded avionics suite and weight reduction.
In 1995, Traverse City AS began seasonal operations out of Air Facility Glenview
(Formerly Air Station Chicago). During the boating season a helicopter was 
deployed with two crews to provide a B-0 resource for south Lake Michigan.
When NAS Glenview closed, a new location for the seasonal Southern Air Facility
was opened in Muskegon, Michigan. Later a congressional mandate resulted in
another air facility at Waukegan, Illinois. In 2000, the air station began
supporting operations from both seasonal facilities. Currently, Air Station Detroit
covers Air Facility Muskegon for the summer season, and Air Station Traverse City
the Waukegan facility. Since 1995, the AIRSTA has provided aircraft and crews to CG
cutters in the Caribbean. Two or three deployments per year of 4 to 6 weeks have
become the norm. Deployed crews are involved in drug and migrant interdiction,
other law enforcement and, of course, SAR. On average, the Air Station handles
175 cases a year. Our area of operations is characterized by 10,000 miles of
coastline and includes Lake Superior, Lake Michigan and Northern Lake Huron.
Add to this the thousands of square miles of inland lakes and rivers, and we have
a unique and varied area to cover. Known locally and beyond as "Great Lakes

sometimes tragic events, on the lakes. The men and women of Traverse City

Air Station Corpus Christi, located onboard Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, 
has provided operational mission support for over 50 years along the 
350 miles of coastline and 400 miles of inland waterways in the Texas 
Coastal Bend area. Established In 1950, USCG Air Detachment Corpus
Christi served the entire western Gulf of Mexico with just one PBY-5 Catalina 
amphibious fixed wing aircraft, four pilots and eleven crew members. 
In the late 1950?s, the detachment received two more aircraft and additional
personnel. The detachment was formally designated Air Station Corpus 
Christi in the mid 1960?s. The Air Station maintains three HH-65A Dolphin
short range recovery helicopters and three HU-25A Guardian medium
range fixed wing aircraft, operated by approximately 28 pilots and 100 aircrew. 
The area of responsibility extends from Port O?Connor, TX, south to 
the Mexican border in support of group units & MSO Corpus Christi. 
The primary mission is Search and Rescue for which an average 360 cases
a year are conducted contributing toward the Group?s annual 112 lives 
saved, 1,707 lives assisted, and $2,861,850 in property saved.

The Aircraft Repair and Supply Center traces its beginnings to the late
1930?s, when the land of the current Support Center Complex at
Elizabeth City was purchased by the government, and to its 
commissioning in 1947 with an initial complement of 10 officers and
63 enlisted personnel. ARSC is the aviation logistics center providing
one stop shopping for all CG aviation logistics support. ARSC not only
overhauls, repairs and modifies all of the CG aviation fleet but also acts
as its inventory control point, engineering technical center and information
technology center. ARSC is responsible for overhauling/repairing aircraft;
providing aircraft parts and equipment to the fleet; re-engineering and 
manufacturing of aircraft parts; performing complex, multi-million dollar
contracting actions; providing technical engineering support; and providing
teams of personnel who provide on-site field assistance to CG air stations
and deployed aircraft. We are the who, what, when, and how of CG aviation
and take to heart our motto, ?We Keep ?Em Flying.? We perform these 
services for 25 air stations operating approximately 167 aircraft as well as
for deployed aircraft worldwide. All major support functions related to an
aircraft system are contained within four streamlined product lines.
The four product lines at ARSC focus on HH-60 ?Jay Hawk? and
HH-65 ?Dauphin? Helicopters, and HC-130 ?Hercules? and HU-25 ?Guardian?
Aircraft. Each year, ARSC overhauls 40 aircraft and modifies another 30.
On an average day, our team ships 620 aircraft parts, responds to more
than 100 technical/engineering questions, performs depot maintenance
on 20 aircraft, works on an additional 3 aircraft for ?drop-in? maintenance, 
manages 180 contracts valued at $404M, has two expert teams repairing
aircraft at air stations, and overhauls 300 component parts. ARSC has
earned high praise among government logistics organizations and the
private sector, becoming the only place in all of government aviation
where engineering, procurement, supply, depot maintenance and the
information hub have been co-located. ARSC occupies 14 buildings
on 55 acres of the 822 acre Support Center complex. ARSC employs 
149 military, 495 civilians and 278 contractors. We are the largest 
employer in the seven county area around Elizabeth City. We control
the largest unit operating budget in the Coast Guard and possess the
largest inventory valued at $743 million. The aviation inventory we manage
at more than 100 locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, with 99.995% 
dollar value accuracy ? well above Department of Transportation Inspector
General audit requirements ? accounts for about three-fourths of all CG
reportable inventory and, by itself, one-fourth of the entire Department of
Transportation inventory. Separate articles and more space than available
here could provide details about management challenges, our unique
organization and solutions to problems which are in place to deal with
customer requirements, critical success factors, key business and
support processes, supplier and partnering relationships and various
strategic factors. Profound changes taking place throughout the Federal
Government have a far reaching impact on the way we plan and manage
our resources. ARSC, like most CG units, operates in a restricted
environment with funding, regulatory and political restraints impacting our
ability to meet goals. The cost of aircraft ownership is increasing as our
real dollar budget declines and operational tempo increases. Political
activities affect our ability to meet customer requirements. The opening
of new air facilities and meeting administration drug enforcement initiatives
strain our system. Fortunately, our innovative people continuously create
and implement programs that help our dollars go farther. Some major 
innovative programs include new product development, performance-based
service contracts, reliability centered maintenance, on-line reverse auction,
rapid deployment of aircraft improvements, and keeping our information 
systems on the cutting edge of technology. ARSC was recognized in 
2001 for its efforts in excellence by being awarded the Commandant?s Silver
Quality Award. What we do at ARSC has a definite impact CG wide. 
Our vision, ?We Keep ?Em Flying by providing the right stuff, at the right
place, at the right time, and at the right cost...EVERY TIME? is crucial to
the CG in obtaining its vision, ?The world?s best Coast Guard...
Ready today...Preparing for tomorrow.?

On September 5th, 1978, Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento stood up its 
first duty section at McClellan AFB. With 145 total crew, a new fixed wing
air station was born in the farmland of the California central valley. The 
reorganization moved the three existing HU-16E Albatross from Air Station
San Francisco and added four HC-130H Hercules to the complement. After
nearly 23 years of cohabitation with the U.S. Air Force, McClellan AFB
closed its doors and became McClellan Park. Today, CGAS Sacramento
has four HC-130H Hercules that accomplish a variety of missions and is still
the only all fixed-wing operational air station in the Coast Guard. With a 
complement of 23 officers and 130 enlisted personnel, this multi-mission air
station provides a 24 hour SAR guard, routinely conducts Alien Migration
Interdiction Operations, fisheries, homeland defense, and counter drug patrols.
With the only remaining fixed wing assets on the west coast, CGAS Sacramento
covers an area that extends north to the Canadian border, south to the
equator, and reaches as far west as Hawaii. This includes over 4 million
square miles of open-ocean and 1,250 miles of US coast line. In addition to
guarding our domestic borders, occasional MEDEVAC missions take us to
Mexico and Central America. On average, the unit handles about 45 Search
and Rescue (SAR) cases per year. Missions range from helicopter escorts to
long range responses to emergency locator beacon signals received by the 
Eleventh District Rescue Coordination Center. Capable of maintaining on
scene presence for over 12 hours, our C-130s provide an excellent communication
platform. By relaying information to the Rescue Coordination Center and 
directing/coordinating other surface and air rescue assets, search action 
plans are executed effectively and efficiently. CGAS Sacramento routinely
sends aircraft to Central and South America to help prosecute the war on 
drugs in support of the Joint Inter-Agency Task Force West. While deployed, 
aircrews work closely with DOD and USCG assets to choke the flow of drugs
through the Eastern Pacific corridor. Thanks to a sophisticated surveillance
system, suspect vessels can be located, tracked, and apprehended without
compromising the aircraft?s position. CGAS Sacramento spends over 1200 of
our 3200 annual programmed flight hours fighting this war. For CGAS Sacramento, 
Search and Rescue is the primary mission, but our active involvement in law
enforcement helps pay the bills. Supporting the Homeland Defense
Department with coastal patrols, CGAS Sacramento devotes considerable
time each month to finding, querying, and confirming the identity of vessels 
bound for US ports. We are a front line of defense, protecting the west coast
ports through a proactive ship arrival system. Working closely with Port 
Security Units, we stand ready to move the people and equipment wherever, 
whenever in order to protect our ports.

In the early sixties, the Coast Guard realized the need for a standardized
pilot/aircrew training program. After the introduction of the turbine powered
HH52A helicopter in 1963, such a program, originally designated as the
Basic Operational Training Unit (BOTU), was formed at Coast Guard Air
Station Savannah, Georgia. In 1966, the vacant 232 acre Air Force Reserve
facility located at Bates Field in Mobile was acquired by the Coast Guard.
On 17 December 1966, Air Station Mobile was officially commissioned and
establishment of the fixed-wing and rotary-wing pilot training units. Air
Station Mobile became the Aviation Training Center and was designated
a headquarters unit under the direct control of the Commandant of the
Coast Guard. ATC provides in-house initial and recurrent training to over
750 HU-25, HH-65, and HH-60 pilots and aircrew annually in Transition, 
Proficiency, Requalification and upgrade courses. Every pilot receives their
initial transition into Coast Guard aircraft here and returns once a year for a
week of intensive refresher training in one of the three flight simulators 
located at ATC Mobile. ATC recently assumed operational control and
oversight for all C-130 aircraft training and standardization. This includes
responsibility for initial C-130 aircraft transition training and standardization
for the C-130 community. ATC HU-25 aircraft stand alert duty in support of
Coast Guard District Eight missions in the Gulf of Mexico and inland
waterways including Search and Rescue, Marine Environmental Protection, 
and Enforcement of the Maritime Laws and Treaties.  In FY 2001, ATC
aircraft flew over 8700 flight hours on over 4800 sorties, and saved over 
40 lives and $250,000 in property during 220 SAR cases. Since its 
beginnings in 1966, the Aviation Training Center has grown dramatically
in size and in number of missions. Currently with 15 aircraft and almost
400 active duty military, civilian and contract personnel, it is one of the
largest air units in the Coast Guard.

Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod lies in the heart of the New England
coast. Air Station Cape Cod traces its roots from the passage of the
Volstead Act of 1919 when suppression of liquor smuggling provided
funding to borrow Navy seaplanes for daily patrols from Naval Air Station
Squantum, Massachusetts. In May of 1925, three seaplanes based at 
Ten Pound Island in Gloucester, Massachusetts, essentially became
the Coast Guard?s first operational air station. Expanded aviation missions
gave us Air Station Salem in 1935. By the late 1940?s, Air Detachment
Quonset Point, Rhode Island, provided much needed runways to
handle the increasing number of nonamphibious airframes. Air Station
Cape Cod formed on land-locked Otis Air Force Base in August of 1970.
The air station operates four HH-60J medium-range recovery helicopters
and four HU-25A medium-range utility jets, flown by approximately 
30 pilots and 100 aircrew. The area of responsibility extends north from
New York City to the Canadian border along seven states where the air
station conducts an average of 250 search and rescue cases annually.
Two alert crews, one helo and one jet, stand a 24-hour watch. The home
of Air Station Cape Cod rests in the center of the Massachusetts Military
Reservation (MMR), a conglomerate of Coast Guard, Air National Guard,
Army National Guard, and Army Reserve units on about 20,000 acres.

A sign posted over the entrance to Maintenance Control in the helicopter
GUARD.? Tools for realizing this vision make up one of the most diverse
aircraft inventories of any CG air station; 5 HH65A ?Dolphin? helicopters, 
4 HH60J ?Jayhawk? helicopters and 5 HC-130H ?Hercules? 4-engine
tactical airlifters. Though the Air Station is the largest single command 
on the Island, Integrated Support Command (ISC) Kodiak also serves
as home to various other commands including four cutters, a COMMSTA
and a LORAN Station. The history of Air Station Kodiak is colorful. 
Originally commissioned on April 17, 1947, Air Detachment Kodiak 
had one PBY-5A ?Catalina.? The unit grew steadily through the next
two decades and was formally named Air Station Kodiak on July 1, 1964.
Since 1966, 14 Kodiak aircrewmen have made the ultimate sacrifice
?that others may live.?

The first Coast Guard Air Station in Alaska?s windy, cold, and rain swept
Southeastern panhandle was established on Annette Island in March 1944. 
In 1977 the Air Station relocated from Annette to Sitka, which was more
centrally located in the Southeastern Alaska operating area. In March of
1977, the barracks and hangar were completed, and the move of personnel
and equipment began. On April 19, 1977, flight operations for the three
Sikorsky HH3Fs were shifted to Sitka. On Alaska Day, October 17, 1977, 
CGAS Sitka was officially commissioned. Since 1977, CGAS Sitka?s 
aircrews have saved over 1,620 lives, assisted thousands of others and 
saved several hundred million dollars in vessel property from the perils
of the sea. Today, CGAS Sitka utilizes three HH-60J Jayhawk helicopters
and has a compliment of 21 officers and 120 enlisted personnel. CGAS Sitka?s
Area of Operations remains all of Southeast Alaska, bordered on the north, 
south, and east by the U.S./Canada border and sharing it?s western 
boundary (central Gulf of Alaska) with Air Station Kodiak. This AOR includes
12,000 miles of coastline and all inland areas of Southeast Alaska. 
Rugged coast, mountainous terrain, severe weather and vast distances
between fuel caches and landing sites characterize this isolated
region. Flying in the Coast Guard?s most challenging flight environment,
CGAS Sitka flight crews average over 150 Search and Rescue (SAR) cases
per year, many completed in storm force winds, snow, low visibility and
periods of extended darkness. In FY01 alone, the unit saved 81 lives and
directly assisted 60 others. While maintaining a "ready" status 24 hours
a day for SAR, the crew and helicopters are also used to support 75 marine
aids-to-navigation, fisheries law enforcement, enforcement of laws and
treaties, and various other missions in cooperation with federal, state, and
local government agencies. The professionalism, ingenuity, and unwavering
devotion to duty displayed by the men and women of Air Station Sitka continue
to reflect great credit upon themselves, their unit, the United States Coast 
Guard, and the United States of America.

----------------Operational USCG Aircraft Overviews------------------

--------------------------HC-130H/J HERCULES-------------------------
    The HC-130H HERCULES is the USCG's primary long-range surveillance
and transport aircraft.  The HERCULES is tasked by the USCG with a wide
range of missions including search and rescue (SAR), law enforcement,
fishery protection, environmental protection, drug interdiction, cargo
and personnel transport and support of the International Ice Patrol.
While operating at low altitude, the HC-130H is capable of remaining
airborne for over 14 hours, while covering a flight route of almost 2000nm.
    The HC-130H fleet is currently finishing a major upgrade of their
sensor system. The heart of the upgrade is a Forward-Looking InfraRed/
Electro-Optical/Low-Light TV (FLIR/EO/LLTV) turret-mounted camera system.
This system will provide a 360-degree field-of-view and high-resolution
software magnification allowing use at standoff ranges.  In addition,
a DAMA-compatible MILSATCOM receiver is being installed. The MILSATCOM
system will allow the exchange of intelligence-related information, such
as imagery, target-tracks, and over-the-horizon tactical datalinks.
The FLIR/EO/LLTV will interface with the HC-130H's AN/APS-137 Inverse
Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR), allowing automatic direction of the FLIR
system, reducing the operator workload for the tactical sensor operator.
All sensor information will be routed into a Tactical Work Station (TWS)
capable of displaying all sensor input. Using the TWS, the sensor operator
can perform real-time analysis and when needed, can route the information
through the MILSATCOM system to shore sites, USCG cutters, and other
MILSATCOM-capable aircraft.
    In addition to this sensor upgrade, the USCG has begun purchasing
another sensor system. The 15xx series of HC-130H's is being equipped to
support the AN/APS-135 Side-Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR), which will
serve as the replacement for the AIREYE system formerly used by HU-25B
aircraft.  Using the AN/APS-135, an area of over 100nm can be mapped on
either side of the aircraft.  This is especially useful in support of the
International Ice Patrol and for tracking down sources of pollution.
    In early 2002 the USCG is scheduled to receive its first of six
HC-130J. These new aircraft will provided a much need boost to the
operational capability of USCG fixed-wing fleet.
    Only one HC-130H has been lost due to an accident during service
with the USCG, this being #1600.
    One last bit of information, USCG 1790 is numbered out-of-sequence
to honor the year that the USCG was founded.

----------------------FALCON JET HU-25 GUARDIAN----------------------
    The HU-25 GUARDIAN is an American-built variant of the
Dassault-Brequet FALCON 20 light-transport jet.  A total of forty-one
HU-25A jets were purchased by the USCG.  At a later date, eight HU-25As
were modified to the HU-25B standard and were equipped with the AIREYE
surveillance system to detect pollution. Again, at a later date, an
additional nine HU-25As were modified into the HU-25C GUARDIAN
INTERCEPTOR. These HU-25Cs were equipped with the AN/APG-66 Airborne
Intercept Radar and were used in the drug interdiction role.
    In 2000, the USCG began a series of upgrades to the HU-25 fleet.
18 HU-25A, all HU-25B, and two HU-25C airframes are scheduled to be
retired from service in order to fund the upgrades and to reduce overall
operating costs for the type...the most expensive in the USCG. The
upgrades are designed to produce two new variants; the HU-25C+ and the
    The HU-25C+ incorporates a variety of sensor upgrades. The AN/APG-66
was upgraded to an improved version providing greater detection range
while reducing weight. In addition, a new Forward-Looking InfraRed/
Electro-Optical/Low-Light TV (FLIR/EO/LLTV) provides a "wide-angle search,
detection, classification, and identification" capability.  This upgrade
also incorporates a Tactical Work Station (TWS) similar to that being
installed on the HC-130H.  USCG sources indicate that seven HU-25C+ will
remain in service, with the last modified aircraft to be delivered by
mid-2002. Of this number, four are to be based at CGAS Miami, while three
will be based at CGAS Corpus Christi.
    The HU-25D is being developed from the HU-25A. Once again, the
primary upgrade is to the sensor system.  The HU-25A's AN/APS-127 radar
is being replaced with the AN/APS-143(V) Inverse Synthetic-Aperture Radar
(ISAR) system. In addition, the HU-25D will include the same FLIR/EO/LLTV
turret as the HU-25C+ and will also incorporate the Tactical Work Station.
A total of six HU-25Ds will remain in service, with three airframes each
at ATC Mobile and CGAS Cape Cod.
    The retired HU-25 airframes are kept in storage at the Aerospace
Maintenance And Regeneration Centre (AMARC) at Davis Monthan AFB, Az. To
date, the following aircraft have been placed in storage: 2106(HU-25A),
2108(HU-25A), 2116(HU-25A), 2119(HU-25A), 2123(HU-25A), 2127(HU-25A),
2130(HU-25A), 2137(HU-25A), and 2138(HU-25A).
     The FY02 budget funded 17 operational airframes. Funding was provided to
convert 6 HU-25A models to HU-25D models and all HU-25Cs were converted to
HU-25C+ models. 
     A May 2003 press release stated there were 9 C+ models and 6 D models

-----------------------SIKORSKY HH-60J JAYHAWK-----------------------
     Entering operational service in 1991, the HH-60J is the primary
medium-range Search and Rescue helicopter in service with the USCG. In
addition, the HH-60J plays a key role in support of the Operation Bahamas
Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) counternarcotics mission.
     The HH-60J has an extensive electronics suite, including a state
of the art Electronic Flight Instrumentation System (EFIS) complete
with CRT multi-function displays. Additional equipment includes the
AN/APN-217 doppler search and weather radar, a Forward-Looking
InfraRed (FLIR) system, GPS receivers, and a Night Vision
Goggles (NVG) compatible cockpit.
    Normally stationed ashore, the Jayhawk can be carried aboard the
larger Medium and High-Endurance cutters. The HH-60J is is too large to
operate from smaller cutters and due to its large size, the HH-65 is
prefered over the HH-60J for all shipborne operations.

    Utilizing the French Aerospatiale Dolphin design, the HH-65A entered
USCG service in 1985.  A total of 96 airframes were purchased by the
USCG. The HH-65 is assigned the primary mission of short-range Search
and Rescue (SAR), and operates from both air stations and USCG Cutters.
    Like other aircraft in USCG service, the HH-65 is undergoing a major
upgrade. Concurrent with each airframe's routine four-year overhaul, the
helicopters will be refit to the HH-65B or HH-65C standard. This upgrade
program began in 2000 and is expected to be finished by 2004.
    The HH-65B upgrade incorporates a new cockpit, upgrading the control
display units and multifunction flat panel displays. In addition, a
significant upgrade to the flight management software is incorporated.
The flight management software provides for flying fully-automatic
search patterns in all weather, and can bring the helicopter to an
automatic hover at an altitude of 50'.
    The HH-65C upgrade involves the addition of a Full-Authority Digital
Engine Control.  This system will increase the reliability of the engine
system providing a greater range of operating conditions with increased
safety for the aircrew.
    Three HH-65A DOLPHINs (6541, 6546, and 6549) have been lost in
service-related accidents since their introduction in 1985.  This
compares to 1 HC-130H and no HH-60J or HU-25 aircraft. An additional
HH-65A (6571) was damaged during a landing accident onboard USCGC
Campbell in January 2001.

-----------------------------MH-68 STING RAY------------------------------

     The Coast Guard's newest helicopter, the MH-68A recently received the 
official designation "Sting Ray."  The Sting Ray is an all-weather, 
short-range, armed interdiction helicopter, employing state of the art 
navigation, communication, and avionics equipment. Unlike the Coast Guard's 
HH-65 Dolphin and HH-60 Jayhawk helicopters which are used mainly for Search 
and Rescue, the MH-68A Sting Ray's primary missions are maritime drug 
interdiction and Homeland Security.
     Built by Agusta Aerospace Corporation, the Sting Ray is the military version 
of the A109E Power civilian helicopter, and is the newest helicopter in the 
U.S. Coast Guard inventory.  While in the past the MH-68A has been referred 
to by various unofficial nicknames, the only authorized designation in now 
"Sting Ray."  The Sting Ray is flown by the U.S. Coast Guard's Helicopter 
Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) Jacksonville based at Cecil Field in 
Jacksonville, Florida.
     HITRON is America's first and only airborne law enforcement unit trained and 
authorized to employ Airborne Use of Force or AUF.   Initially tasked with 
interdicting and stopping suspected drug-laden, high-speed vessels known as 
"go-fasts," HITRON's mission was expanded to include Maritime Homeland 
Security, and the unit now has a key role on the front lines of America's 
war on drugs and terrorism.  HITRON aircrews routinely deploy aboard U.S. 
Coast Guard cutters patrolling the high seas to stem the tide of illegal 
drugs flowing into the United States.  Sting Ray aircrews interdict go-fast 
smuggling vessels, using incremental steps to compel the vessel to stop.  
Ultimately, if the vessel refuses to comply, Sting Ray crews are authorized 
to disable the vessel's engines with gunfire.  Since employing the Sting 
Ray, HITRON aircrews have successfully interdicted over 30 tons of illegal 
drugs valued at more than $2.1 billion.
     HITRON aircrews now also stand ready to deploy to cities around the nation 
to provide security for U.S. ports and associated waterways as a resource in 
the U.S. Coast Guard's new Maritime Homeland Security role whenever there is 
a credible terrorist threat.  "The use of Coast Guard HITRON for armed 
patrols will increase the level of security in our ports, provide an 
additional layer of defense, ensure continued safe flow of commerce and 
deter possible acts of terrorism in our nation's key ports", said Secretary 
of Homeland Security Tom Ridge.  HITRON aircrews and the MH-68A Sting Ray 
are poised to defend our shores and fulfill the Coast Guard's motto of 
Semper Paratus-Always Ready.

The unit has also changed its name from HITRON-10 to HITRON Jacksonville, 
and they have eight helicopters using serial numbers assigned by Agusta as 
they came off the production line which is why they do not match the regular 
Coast Guard aircraft numbering system.  They are aircraft 1078, 1081, 1091, 
1095, 1098, 1099, 1109, 1113.
