Welcome Aboard Air Station Miami

Links from this page to non-Coast Guard sites are provided as a customer service and do not represent any implicit or explicit endorsement by the United States Coast Guard of any commercial or private issues, products, or services presented there.

Upon arrival, you will join the dedicated crew of one of the busiest Search and Rescue units in the world!

You'll become a member of a dynamic work environment full of challenges and rewards. The pace will keep you busy, but you will have plenty of opportunity to explore the wonders of South Florida. There is an endless array of activities including water sports, performing arts, hopping nightlife, tropical beaches, world-class cuisine, family events, and of course Florida’s numerous tourist attractions (i.e. Disney World, the Everglades and Key West).


Check-in

When you first arrive at Air Station Miami, report to the Personnel Office in the Uniform of the Day (Tropical Blue Long). The Air Station Administration building (on your right as you enter the main gate) will process the paperwork to restart your BAH and check you back out on leave/house hunting, if necessary. Additionally, a pre-arrival house-hunting trip is very worthwhile and is highly recommended. Be sure to stop by Air Station Miami for a quick tour and a welcome brief from our Family Services Department.

Living Arrangements

Broward and Dade County rental guides are normally available at the Special Services Department. For assistance in finding a new home and to determine if you require a non-availability statement, contact Personnel Services Support Unit Miami’s Local Housing Authority (LHA) with your arrival date, dependent status, location preference, home preference, and/or any special needs.
