9CR AUXAIR program

The 9th Central District has an active Auxiliary Air Operations (AUXAIR) program. Because aircraft can cover large geographical areas quickly and to insure a consistent level of safety, AUXAIR is organized at the District level rather than on a Flotilla and Division basis.

For general information on the AUXAIR program, we invite you to look at the National Response Department Aviation Division web site. The 9CR AUXAIR program follows all applicable National regulations, instructions and guidance. These documents may be found on the National Response Department Aviation Division web site. Additional guidance, specific to the Ninth District and to our Air Stations, is posted below.

If you are interested in joining the AUXAIR program, we invite you to look at this guide to Becoming Qualified in the AUXAIR program. You may contact the DSO-AV if you desire to participate in this program.
