Flying With NOAA

helicopters  banner

Up, down, stop and hover, perch where you please.  Perhaps out of all modes of flight, the helicopter comes closest to the freedom of the birds.  Landing on mountain-tops, taking off from the decks of NOAA ships, observing marine mammals, or moving NOAA scientists over the ice of Arctic seas, NOAA helicopters support the science of the ocean and atmosphere in myriad ways.  In fact, many projects would be nearly impossible to accomplish without the support of these helicopters dedicated to NOAA science.   Join the NOAA (and the occasional Coast Guard) helicopters as they help NOAA scientists and engineers accomplish their missions..
