Coast Guard aircraft may participate in appropriate public events that help contribute to recruiting or public knowledge of the Coast Guard. Flights must not interfere with operations and be at no additional cost to the US Government. If you would like to request a flyover, SAR demo or static display please fill out a DD2535 and submit it to the nearest FAA Flight Standards District Office at least 60 days prior to your event. Your local FSDO contact information can be found by using this FAA website: http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/field_offices/fsdo/
Email an electronic copy of the request to James.T.Christy@uscg.mil. If you request a HC-144 Ocean Sentry to flyover lower than 1000' you need to request that in a waiver (FAA 7711) which also needs to be submitted to the nearest FAA District Office and emailed to James.T.Christy@uscg.mil.
Any other media inquiries please contact the Public Affairs Officer at 508-968-6613 or email at
James.T.Christy@uscg.mil. If after hours, please contact the first district duty PAO at 617-223-8515.
Disclaimer: Mission support is a priority and we cannot commit to requests any further than one month out. All are subject to cancellation due to weather or aircraft maintenance.
The Coast Guard does not support any event or organization that discriminates in any way, such as excluding any person from its membership, because of sex, race, creed, color, age or national origin.
