Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen
Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen is based at Rafael Hernandez International Airport (former Ramey AFB) in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Moves here as CGAS Puerto Rico in November 1971 from former CGAS San Juan, which was located on the Isla Grande Naval Air Station. In 1976 was renamed CGAS Borinquen

Aircraft inventory normally includes 4 helicopters plus some fixed wing aircraft as the HH-130 Hercules and HU-25 Falcon Jets
Early 1973 (January/February)I was part of the ferry crew that delivered 1489,1490,1491 to CGAS Puerto Rico. Left ATC Mobile and over-nighted in Nassau, then continued to Puerto Rico. Some of the crew stayed to train general maintenance and flight operations. In June I was transferred to CGAS Puerto Rico. I was there until May of 1976.
