Well done on your accomplishment, LT! Such an important aircraft!

#DYK The Ocean Sentry is particularly effective at locating objects in large search areas and vectoring other military, government and first responders to these locations. The aircraft has the capability to perform aerial delivery of search and rescue equipment, such as rafts, pumps and flares. Also, with its sophisticated command and control system, it can serve as a platform for an on-scene commander during homeland security missions.

Happy Friday all,
And to our three new AST3s from AST Class 141-21, Congratulations on your incredible achievements! You made it!!!

Our sincere Thanks to the AST A school instructors at U.S. Coast Guard Aviation Technical Training Center for continuing to sharpen the the spear!

#DYK: All ASTs must be in superior physical shape with no chronic orthopedic problems, possess a high level of mental acuity and outstanding military bearing. Training is extremely stressful and is designed to identify those candidates who possess the physical and mental skills to handle the rigors of being a helicopter rescue swimmer. A high degree of confidence in, around, and underneath the water is required. An aptitude for mechanics as well as school courses in algebra, geometry, and machinery are very helpful. Additionally, candidates must pass an aircrew-candidate physical and qualify for a "secret" security clearance.
