Gulfstream C-37  USA Long Range Command & Control aircraft C-37A 2 Two USCG VC-37As provides VIP transport for high-ranking members of the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Coast Guard using the designation Coast Guard 01 or Coast Guard 02. The C-37A enjoys commonality of parts and supplies with more than a dozen C-37As operated by the Department of Defense.

The Coast Guard's fleet currently includes five HC-130H (1500 series), 22 HC-130H-7 (1700 series), and six HC-130J models of the famous Hercules, widely recognized as the West's premier military transport. Many of the HC-130Bs are slated to be replaced by HC-130Js.
HC-144 Ocean Sentry  Spain Search and rescue aircraft HC-144 18 The HC-144A will assume medium range surveillance and transport requirements, replacing the HU-25 and some HC-130s. The Ocean Sentry has the capability to perform aerial delivery of search and rescue equipment such as rafts, pumps, and flares, and it can serve as an on-scene commander platform for homeland security missions, since it is outfitted with the IDS Command and Control (C2) System, and the start-of-the-art C4ISR suite of sensors and avionics. CGAS Miami is the first unit to receive operational HC-144A's.

As part of the ongoing H-65 Conversion / Sustainment Project, all HH-65Bs have been upgraded to HH-65C configuration, equipped with Turbomecca Arriel 2C2 engines. Furthermore, the re-designation of AUF HH-65Cs to MH-65Cs reflects the installation of armament and a significantly upgraded communications package. The MH-65D is also currently being delivered to air stations throughout the Coast Guard. The MH-65E model is expected to begin to be delivered to the fleet in FY14.
