U.S. Coast Guard aviators are the eyes in the sky. The hard work and dedication Coast Guard aviators do on a daily basis is seen in their intensive training. Coast Guard aviators conduct multiple training flights to be ready for search and rescue cases. Whether the Coast Guard man or woman is jumping into the water or flying a search pattern for an extended time above the ocean, our aviators are fully prepared to assist when needed. #USCG #CoastGuard #SAR #Ready #D7
