IFC Community,

I am happy to announce, that thanks to the great team at FDS, we have ordered 10 new CRJ700’s to replace our ERJ170 fleet, conducting Search and Rescue and Reconnaissance Operations, as well as short haul personnel transport. Our first two arrived at our USCG-IF Virtual Headquarters, Elizabeth City (KECG) this morning!

Come fly these new aircraft, as well as all of our other airframes at USCG-IF Virtual.

Stay tuned for our next IFC Event, which will be announced soon.

Dear Infinite Flight Community, we would like to recruit you during a time that is great for us. Listen to some of the feedback that we received from USCG-IF pilots would like to share about some of the amazing experiences that they have had at USCG-IF.

Why join us?
Well, there are many great things about being a part of the amazing USCGIF: Conducting patrols along the coast, rescuing stranded individuals, protecting our border, but i think we should let our pilots tell you what they think of their experiences:

AR Nick, Atlantic Wing:

“USCG treating me like family since the first moment i joined, everyone from command staff to Airmen were helping learn and understand the process, and I have had nothing but good moments and fun adventures with all sorts of USCG pilots from around the world.”

RADM Lance, Command Staff: 

“I enjoy the never ending opportunities for various missions, including rescue, surveillance patrols, public relations events and most importantly, the teamwork that everyone provides to encouraging and sharing their various skill sets.”

AR Ashton, Atlantic Wing:

“From my time being in USCG-IF , I’ve had many happy and memorable experiences with the VO. They have enjoyable group flights, a money system for the purchase of planes, and lots more. The members are great and I highly recommend USCG-IF”

LCDR Adam Ruley:

“My experience with USCG-IF has been a very positive experience. Everyone is very supportive and we work together to get the job done.”

And finally a phrase from the USCG-IF Admiral Charles Fosbroke:

“It is an honor and a privilege to be able to run such an amazing group of incredible pilots and staff that go above and beyond, every day, to ensure that our country is safe and our borders are secure.”

I might join but I was wondering what does the coast guard plane do in real life like what is there flight plan

They don’t have a set flight plan usually. When they’re looking for something, eg. missing boat, they will circle around the area where the bot should be. So they are not flying from a point to point. However, there could be situations when they are flying using a fpl but it’s normally not during search and rescue ops
