US Coast Guard Air Station Houston is known as the “Best Li’l Air Station in Texas.” Since 1963, through peace and war, Air Station Houston has served the local community and the nation in a wide variety of critical roles and missions.
Strategically located in the heart of the Gulf of Mexico, Air Station Houston pilots and personnel have braved the worst imaginable sea and storm conditions to rescue those in peril. Their response to natural disasters, search and rescue missions, environmental protection and law enforcement cases is legendary. With only about 90 personnel they cover an immense area with their HH-65C Dolphin helicopters. Flood relief, oil tanker collisions, burning barges, tropical storms—all have witnessed the courage and skill of the pilots from Air Station Houston.
