Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the official topic of the US Coast Guard- Infinite Flight! We serve the community by securing the US border and detecting threats in the airspace. We use the C-130J, F-16, and C208 in our units. Members who apply must have at least 20 hours of Live time and will undergo a 5-hour training course in the C208. Once the course is over they will transition to captaining their own C-130J Super Hercules. Certain members will become eligible to become F-16 interceptor pilots after they complete 100 hours with the Coast Guard.
Patrol Flights: The US Coast Guard intends to have at least one C-130 on patrol at all times. There will be a maximum of 2 USCG C-130s on patrol in one region. These flights can last up to three hours.
Interception Flights: The US Coast Guard intends to have at least one F-16 Falcon on standby to intercept targets designated as potentially threatening by a USCG C-130 Patrol. Flights will attempt to lead dangerous aircraft to a designated airport.
Transport Flight: Some C-130s will also participate in airlifts between bases.
All missions will be assigned on the VA Slack site. Our site is uscg-if.slack.com.
