Public Affairs Request

Air Station Atlantic City (ASAC) houses 10 helicopters, 60 pilots, and 300 enlisted and support personnel. Created in 1998 from the two decommissioned Air Stations, ASAC has a wide range of missions from Search and Rescue to helping to protect America's Capital. In addition, we provide Public Affairs services to support our community, the public, and our fellow Coast Guard units.

Public Affairs missions include:
1. Static Display
2. Search and Rescue Demonstration (SAR Demo)
3. Fly By
4. Tour of ASAC
5. Guest Speaker

Public Affairs missions are scheduled around the operational requirements of our unit and are subject to cancelation if operational necessities or restrictions arise. Note that the Aircraft Commander and Aircrew reserve the right to cancel missions, if weather or other unsafe factors provide an unacceptable level of risk. Requests made within two weeks of the event date are subject to denial.
