Good morning from the Wings Over Houston Airshow! Air Station Houston will be providing a static display of one of our helicopters and flying a Search and Rescue demonstration on both days of the show. Additionally, an HC-144 from Sector Corpus Christi and a 29-foot Response Boast from MSST Houston came out to provide static displays! This is truly an all hands event, and everyone from Air Station Houston puts in a tremendous effort to ensure the Coast Guard represents well in front of a large audience! #uscg #mh65dolphin #hc144oceansentry #msst #wingsoverhouston

Another water survival training that Aviators have to complete is Shallow Water Egress Training (SWET). Air Station Houston members completed SWET two weeks ago. The training involves a swim and water tread test, as well as 3 "rides" in the egress chair. The chair simulates the cockpit of the helicopter and helps to build muscle memory in the event of an emergency. Here is a video of one of our pilots, LT George Matthews, completing a ride in the chair! #uscg #training

On the Friday before the Wings Over Houston Airshow, we host an Open Ramp event here at Air Station Houston. The event brings together local Coast Guard members and their families, as well as other partners from the Houston community. Guests get the chance to see a practice run of the airshow and enjoy a fun filled day in the Coast Guard hangar! It's always a huge success! #uscg #wingsoverhouston

Today Air Station Houston had our WET Drills, an annual survival training consisting of lectures and water survival exercises. This year, we had the awesome opportunity to conduct the training at NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory here in Houston. The pool is used to train Astronauts for space walks! #uscg #training #watersurvival #neutralbuoyancylab

A critical job performed by our maintainers is collecting the daily fuel samples. This ensures that the aircraft fuel is not contaminated in any way, a condition that would be extremely hazardous to our aircrews. This is just another example of the hard work done by our maintenance folks! #uscg #airstationhouston #flightmechanic

#USCG Air Station Houston would not be able to execute the mission without the dedication of our maintainers. The Flight Mechanics who operate the hoist during Search and Rescue cases also perform maintenance on the aircraft, and their tireless work keeps our helicopters in top condition! #uscgaviation #flightmechanic

#USCG MH65D helicopters performing "deck landing qualifications" with Coast Guard Cutters. Shipboard landings are a critical part of pilot and aircrew training, both to maintain proficiency and prepare for deployments aboard cutters.

A crucial part of helicopter flying is the ability to land on "non-standard" landing areas. At Air Station Houston, we train extensively on hospital pads and oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. We have to be ready to drop a patient off at a confined hospital pad at any time, and oil rigs are extremely valuable resources to extend the helicopter's operating range for offshore Search and Rescue cases. Not to mention, it's really fun flying! #uscg #mh65dolphin

Today we'll be showcasing some of the operational missions conducted at Air Station Houston! Hoisting is the bread and butter of our Search and Rescue aircrews. We constantly conduct hoist training to improve the proficiency of our Pilots, Flight Mechanics, and Rescue Swimmers. Pictured here is Rescue Swimmer training and K9 hoist training with Maritime Safety and Security Team (MSST) Houston! #uscg #uscgaviation #searchandrescue
