Air Station Savannah provides Search & Rescue (SAR) coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for 450 miles of shoreline from the northern border of South Carolina to Melbourne, Florida, averaging more than 250 SAR cases a year. Other missions include: Marine Safety, Marine Environmental Protection, Fisheries Enforcement, Aids to Navigation support, Migrant Interdiction, Drug Interdiction, Other Law Enforcement and Defense Readiness. Many of these missions require deployment of aviation detachments aboard Coast Guard Cutters.

On April 17th SIBC members have a unique opportunity to tour USCG Air Station at Hunter Army Air Field. Our host is LT. Tucker Williams USCG. We will be meeting at 9:30 am at the Methodist Church parking lot and be transported by an Old Town Trolley to Hunter AAF. We will clear security and then tour the USCG Air Station with LT. Williams. Following our tour, we will have lunch at a suitable location on the Landings. We should be done by early afternoon.
