U.S. Coast Guard Air Station San Diego is a Coast Guard Air Station based in San Diego, California, United States, across the street from San Diego International Airport. CGAS San Diego operates three MH-60T Jayhawk helicopters off the Coast Guard ramp.
CGAS San Diego is also adjacent to Sector San Diego which houses two 41-foot Utility Boats, two 21-foot USCG rigid hull inflatable boats, one 25-foot RB-HS and three 25-foot RB-S. Being implemented are two 33-foot Special Purpose Craft-Law Enforcement, which are 33-foot-long USCG vessels used for maritime Law Enforcement. The 33-foot SPC-LE’s have three 275 horsepower Mercury Marine engines along with some of the most advanced electronics systems in existence. Also at the station are two 87-foot USCG Coastal Patrol Boats. The air station is physically separated from the rest of the airfield, such that USCG fixed-wing aircraft must cross a busy, 6-lane city street to reach the runway; street light activation opens the locked gates to the airfield and the air station, and also stops traffic while aircraft are traversing the street.
Lindbergh Field opened on October 16, 1934, on the Pacific Highway. The San Diego International Airport East Terminal opened on March 6, 1967, and the West Terminal opened July 11, 1979. A new Commuter Terminal opened July 23, 1996. It is self-contained, full service facility with four gates used by seven commuter airlines to handle 25,000 passengers each day. Construction of the expansion of the West Terminal ended in November, 1997. Almost 14 million passengers travel through Lindbergh Field each year. The 27 passenger and cargo airlines operate more than 500 flights each day from the runways.
