Prefectura Naval Argentina
The Servicio de AviaciĆ³n (Coast Guard Air Service) traces its origins to 1946 when a small group of officers was sent to the Argentine Naval Aviation school. They learned to fly on the Boeing N2S Kaydet and North American SNJ of the Argentine Navy which also transferred their first aircraft: Three Grumman JRF Goose.

In 1961 the service received its first helicopter: a Sikorsky S-51 Dragonfly.

More than a half a century later, and supported by CASA 212MP and Beechcraft 350ER MPA aircraft, their helicopters fly daily performing search and rescue, surveillance and support missions from the tropical Iguazu region to the patagonian Tierra del Fuego.
