Search & Rescue

vUSCG pilots work in coordination with ground units, sea patrols and air traffic control to help find and provide life-saving medical care to people in distress on any of the U.S. waterways or coastlines.

Maritime Law Enforcement

Units such as our HITRON (Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron) work to intercept and stop the illicit transport of drugs via sea into the United States.

Airborne Transport

Aircraft like the C-37A Gulfstream provide comfortable executive transportation. These aircraft travel around the world to support vUSCG and vDepartment of Homeland Security leadership.

Enviromental Patrol

vUSCG aircraft have special equipment making them crucial to preserving natural enviroments. From ice patrol to fishery observation to oil spill tracking; our fleet can do it all.
