1. PURPOSE. To provide policy and guidance to all District Seven Auxiliary Aviators concerning initial and annual emergency egress and water survival training.

2. ACTION. All Auxiliarists in the Seventh Coast Guard District participating in the Auxiliary Aviation Program will comply with the contents of this Directive.

3. DIRECTIVES AFFECTED. Seventh Coast Guard District Auxiliary Policy Directive AV-02 is cancelled.


a. Introduction. It is required that all Auxiliary Pilots, Air Crew, Observers, and Aviation Trainees complete initial and annual training in emergency egress and water survival. This training is usually conducted as part of the Annual Aviation Workshops, and members are encouraged to complete this annual requirement at the Aviation Workshops. Additional training may also be scheduled as needed by the Auxiliary Aviation Coordinators (AACs). The AAC will provide prior notification to the District Staff Officer-Aviation (DSO-AV) and the District Staff Officer-Aviation Training (ADSO-AVT) of the date, time and place of any additional training. Members may not complete this required training except as listed above. Pilots, Air Crew and Observers who do not complete this required training will not meet annual currency maintenance and their certification will lapse, which will prevent them from receiving orders.

b. Training certification. Members successfully completing initial or annual training as scheduled by the AAC (other than the Annual Aviation Workshops) are required to have their training certified by one of the following:

(1) Active Duty CG Personnel conducting the training (if applicable)

(2) AAC

(3) Certified Auxiliary Instructor Pilot (IP) or Auxiliary Flight Examiner (FE)

c. Reports. The AAC shall send the name, member number (EMPLID), and flotilla number of each member who has completed the training requirements to the Director of Auxiliary for entry into the AUXDATA computer database and to the ADSO-AVMP. Water Survival and Egress training should be submitted on separate attendance sheets. The Workshop Mission and Attendance Report (ANSC 7039) form is preferred, but a similar locally generated form may by used. Ensure that the type of training, date of training, and location of training are listed on the form. Ensure that all entries are printed and legible. No credit can be given if DIRAUX is unable to read the name.

5. RESPONSIBILITY. The District Staff Officer–Aviation (DSO-AV) is tasked with recommending changes for this Directive to the Director via the District Chief of Staff.
