Squadron Aircraft



Cessna Skylane 182T G-1000

We have one aircraft based at Oakland: a 2012 Cessna 182T with Garmin's integrated G1000.  The  airplane is used to conduct Search and Rescue (SAR) missions, cadet orientation rides, reconnaissance missions and crew training.  The airplane is also used for homeland security operations and exercises and for assisting emergency services during a disaster.

The Cessna 182 is prized by crews for its reliability, ease of use and stability for high-endurance search and rescue, photo reconnaissance, transportation and training missions in all environments. Powered by a 230-hp fuel-injected piston engine, it cruises at 125 kts  and can search capably in northern California's Sierra mountain range, with the ability to operate comfortably at over 12,000 feet above sea level.
