Coast Guard One

Coast Guard One is the call sign of any United States Coast Guard aircraft carrying the President of the United States. Similarly, any Coast Guard aircraft carrying the Vice President is designated Coast Guard Two.[1]

Vice President Joe Biden on Coast Guard Two

As of 2021, there has never been a Coast Guard One flight. Coast Guard Two was activated on September 25, 2009, when then-Vice- President Joe Biden took a flight on CG 6019, an HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, over the recently flooded Atlanta area.[2][3]

Other executive travelEdit

The Commandant of the Coast Guard often travels aboard a Gulfstream C-37A aircraft whose standard callsign is "Coast Guard Zero One". The aircraft is stationed at Coast Guard Station Washington, D.C.[4][5]
