Challenges Facing Bay Area Coast Guard Pilots
The Coast Guard saves thousands of lives each year, what's the quickest way to get help? Ever wanted to learn more about them?
Date and Time:
Wednesday, August 19, 2020, starting at 19:00 Pacific Daylight Time (20:00 MDT, 21:00 CDT, 22:00 EDT, 16:00 HST, 18:00 AKDT, 19:00 Arizona, 02:00 GMT)
Lt Jacob Marks'
Brief Description:

Water rescues, stranded boaters, and capsized boats require immediate response from the Coast Guard to save lives.  The Coast Guard practices every day for these scenarios but it’s only a matter of time before a real incident occurs; and that's where they’re put to the test.

San Carlos Flight Center invites the Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco, to share the unique air operations they encounter on a daily basis.  The men and women of the Coast Guard have to be constantly on guard to handle the unexpected; learn how they prepare for it. In this seminar, the Coast Guard will share how to increase your survival during and after ditching, how they conduct ELT searches, and much more.  Furthermore, they will show the different ways you as a pilot can help the Coast Guard in these tense situations, how to get help faster, and save your life.

You won’t want to miss this seminar if you are interested in learning more about Coast Guard Operations in the Bay Area, or more importantly how to become a safer, more knowledgeable pilot.


Lt Jacob Marks’ has many responsibilities in the Coast Guard such as a MH-65 Dolphin Pilot, instructor pilot and flight examiner. My collateral duty is managing a safety system for our Air Station as a Flight Safety Officer. I enjoy flying in the challenging demanding conditions of the bay area and California Coast while helping those in need. I look forward to meeting you and discussing our operations in the bay area and California Coast!
