Welcome to Air Station Sitka Alaska

Southeast Alaska's Premier Search & Rescue Service

Air Station Sitka’s area of responsibility (AOR) encompasses the entire Southeast region of Alaska from Dixon Entrance north to Central Alaska and from the U.S./Canadian border west to the central Gulf of Alaska. Air Station Sitka’s AOR presents the most demanding flight environment for Coast Guard aircraft operations, with 12,000 miles of isolated and rugged coastline and responsible for all inland search and rescue for Southeast Alaska. This region includes numerous remote villages and is characterized by mountainous terrain, severe weather and vast distances between fuel caches and landing sites.
