Coast Guard Aviation Association

Local Chapters & Coordinators

CGAA Chapters have been established in the general region of Coast Guard Aviation Units as well as other selected locations. The purpose is to raise the profile of the Association, interact with former and active duty aviation personnel, as well as the local Air Auxiliary, and to recruit new members. So, instead of Local Coordinators we now have Chapter Coordinators.

The Chapter Coordinator represents the CGAA to the following:

The local Command

  • Sole point of contact for CGAA issues
  • Assist the Command as the CO may desire
  • All CG Aviation personnel in the area
  • Officer or Enlisted, Active or Retired as well as Air Auxiliary

The Local Community

  • As able, involve Chapter members in community activities and civic as well as other veterans organizations

Take a look at the latest list, contact your Chapter Coordinator and offer up some assistance. Or, just go ahead and be one. If you wish to become a CC, contact Ptero Chapter Liaison Mark Benjamin at 231-642-1201 or email [email protected]
