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..
