The Joint Missouri Task Force 1/Missouri Army National Guard Helicopter Search and Rescue Team (MO-TF1/MOARNG HSART) spent the last two days participating in a large-scale helicopter search and rescue exercise in Texas. The “2019 Air-X Coastal Hurricane Aviation Evacuation Search & Rescue Exercise” was based out of Scholes International Airport in Galveston, TX. A total of 19 aircraft from 8 helicopter search and rescue organizations participated in the two-day exercise. On the first day, team commanders and ground controllers were given an Air-X exercise aviation brief; provided an overview of disaster airspace and mission support coordination; and provided a review of helicopter search and rescue operations during Hurricane Florence. HSART teams reviewed team capabilities and discussed equipment, tactics and procedures used during helicopter search and rescue. On the second day, all participating teams were assigned rescue missions in the surrounding area. Three Missouri (MOARNG) aircraft, a UH-60 Blackhawk from Fort Leonard Wood, a UH-60 Blackhawk from Springfield and a UH-72 Lakota from Jefferson City, and their crews and five MO-TF1 HSART techs participated. The three teams were comprised of a MOARNG helicopter crew (two pilots and a crew chief) and either one or two MO-TF1 HSART technicians. The UH-60’s flew with two HSART techs and the UH-72 flew with one HSART tech. Also attending were the MO-TF1 HSART Program Manager, the MOARNG HSART Program Manager and a representative from the Missouri National Guard State Aviation Office. They managed flight operations for the three Missouri HSART teams as members of the Joint Air Ground Coordination Team (JACGT) during the exercise. During the exercise, the three teams flew a total of 8 missions and rescued 15 victims. These missions included rescuing victims from flooded areas including open water, trees, roofs of buildings and roofs of cars. ... See MoreSee Less
