The primary objective of the Aviation Safety Program is to support Coast Guard Office of Safety and Environmental Health (CG-113) mission, vision and values by providing safety oversight and advocacy for aviation assets, systems and missions. The Aviation Safety Program also serves as the aviation-specific service center for fleet commands and Flight Safety Officers (FSO).
