Coast Guard ribbon-cutting/commissioning ceremony for new Air Station Ventura Postponed

SAN PEDRO, Calif. — The scheduled ribbon cutting and commissioning ceremony for the U.S. Coast Guard's newest air station at Naval Base Ventura County, Point Mugu has been postponed until further notice.

Updates and additional information will be released when available.

Air Station Ventura features a $70 million state-of-the-art, 43,000 square foot hangar and a 12,000 square foot administration facility, ensuring that Coast Guard personnel have the resources needed to carry out their vital missions. This new facility will house three MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters and approximately 100 personnel, significantly enhancing the Coast Guard's capabilities in the region. 

The air station will serve a crucial role in protecting the busy maritime region from Orange County to San Luis Obispo County including the vital ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The permanent presence of the Coast Guard in Ventura County will provide enhanced security and quicker response times to emergencies, benefiting both the local community and maritime industries.
