Coast Guard Air Station Astoria
CGAS Astoria was established on August 14, 1964 at Tongue Point Naval Station with 2 HH-52A Seaguard to be operated from that location. The helicopters moved to Port of Astoria Airport during bad weather until February 25, 1966 when they moved permanently to their present location at the airport

The 2 HH-52A were replaced with 3 larger HH-3F Pelican in March 1973 and 2 HU-25A Falcon jet aircraft were assigned to the Air Station in October 1983.

A 4.8 million dollar construction began in 1982 and was completed in August 1984 resulting in a two-fold expansion on the hangar building. A third HU-25A Falcon was added in June 1988.

In September 1987 the HH-3F Pelicans were replaced with 3 HH-65 Dolphins. In 1995 both the HU-25A Falcons and the HH-65 Dolphins were replaced by the HH-60J Jayhawk
