Wing partners with USCG Joint Training

  • 920th Rescue Wing
The 301st Rescue Squadron, 920th Rescue Wing, partnered with the U.S. Coast Guard in October to conduct hoist training off of a Florida coast. The HH-60G Pavehawk helicopters hoisted pararescuemen from the mobile U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Kathleen Moore.
This training requires the entire crew to be in complete coordination; the pilots must hold a hover with minimal visual references of a moving vessel while the special mission aviators direct the pilots where the helicopter needs to be positioned over the ship so the PJ’s below can hook up a patient all while the ship is moving through the ocean, pitching and rolling.
