On its west is one of the largest and most unforgiving wetland ecosystems in the world, the 2,410-square-mile Everglades National Park. On the southern border is the pristine island chain of the Florida Keys. And to the east are the clear blue waters of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Four aircraft at two bases meet the needs for maintenance and a high level of readiness. The best-case scenario is for Air Rescue to have one duty aircraft at the north base and another duty aircraft at the south base. The third aircraft would be a spare in case one of the duty ships has an unscheduled maintenance issue, while the fourth aircraft slot would be for the aircraft that is in a scheduled phase of maintenance or inspection.


From an operational and regulatory standpoint, Air Rescue
