My Coast Guard

Join the flight crew!


Meet the crew of an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, hop into the front seat of an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, and go for a ride! The Dolphin is the Coast Guard's primary helicopter, and we use it for search and rescue (SAR), law enforcement and many other missions. It normally carries a crew of four: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer and rescue swimmer.
