Surface Operations

Surface Operations and the Boat Crew Training Program are at the heart of most flotilla activities. Boat Crew members and Coxswains are qualified in accordance with the current Auxiliary Boat Crew Training Manual, COMDTINST M16794.51A (as revised effective January 1, 2007). The Coxswain requests and receives orders for a patrol that is multi-mission in nature. Patrols are carried out in accordance with the Auxiliary Operations Policy Manual.

Air Operations

AUXAIR is an Auxiliary operational program, but organized on a district level rather than on a flotilla and division basis. AUXAIR aviators have varied aviation backgrounds and many have prior military experience. AUXAIR aviators volunteer their aircraft for use as facilities, just as surface operators volunteer their boats. All Auxiliary aircraft meet strict U.S. Coast Guard and Federal Aviation Administration requirements. These aircraft are inspected annually per the Commandants instruction.

Communications Operations

Auxiliary communications are not bound into a rigidly structured operational system but rather consist of fixed land stations, land mobile stations and direction finder stations that have been accepted by the Director of the Auxiliary as radio facilities.  The primary purposes of the Auxiliary communications network are:
              - Coordinating authorized Auxiliary activities in support of Coast Guard Operations ("operational communications")
             - Augmenting the Coast Guard communications system, when required ("contingency communications")
             - Communicating urgent matters of official Auxiliary business ("operational communications")
             - Training
             - Assisting national resources in time of disaster ("contingency communications")
