    Really appreciate these forums and the great questions and answers that are on here. I'm hoping to go DCA when my ADSO is up and I'm curious if anyone on here knows how the aviation support for Cutters works, specifically regarding at-sea tours. (My apologies if this is not the correct terminology. I'm an Army CPT and doing my best to speak the right language)

    Are specific Air Stations tagged to support specific cutters or are they more regionally aligned to support any operations within their area of responsibility? What is the best way to guarantee or increase your possibility of going to sea?(ex. choosing specific locations, HH65-vs HH60J etc.) What are the expectations for pilots while at sea? (Additional duties, mission set, average flying etc.)

    Any and all information regarding aviation assets in support of Cutters would be greatly appreciated. It is such a foreign concept to me and I would love to get a better idea on what that potentially looks like.

    Right now only 65s support cutter deployments. That may/will change in the near future as the coast guard's 65s get older (going on 40+ years now and we're the last major user of the platform in the world) but currently 60s aren't deployable on cutters.

    In general most air stations support 2-3 cutter deployments per year. The number and location doesn't vary much but it's all decided at the area (Atlantic and pacific, think major command in the Army) level. The big exception to this are atlantic city, HITRON, and Kodiak. Atlantic city doesn't do any cutter deployments since they support the NCR RWAI mission. HITRON and Kodiak (on the 65 side) only do cutter deployments (no SAR duties) however those two air stations are only for 2nd tour pilots. Savannah, New Orleans, and Detroit may not do cutter deployments as well since their deployment is augmenting the RWAI mission

    Caveat being I'm just a dude and may be wrong about things and they will certainly change in coming years. The big push is to make the 60s and cutters work together so that they can take over some of the responsibilities as the coast guard runs out of parts for the 65.

    Very informative, thanks.

    Are HITRON and Kodiak the only to locations that are only for 2nd Tour pilots? Makes sense with the complexity of mission or location, just wondering if there are other spots at there in the same boat.

    Any assignment in AK (Sitka or Kodiak) and HITRON are the only assignments restricted to 2nd tour+ pilots.
