Every Coast Helicopter Operations is comprised of thousands of paramedics, nurses, pilots, mechanics, comm specs, police officers, and military members with one thing in common - public safety aviation. The best part - joining ECHO is free!
ECHO was founded by operational flight programs to take advantage of joint training opportunities in a less formal environment at no/low cost to our members.
It was created and designed as a way to utilize the wealth of knowledge and experience brought forth by individual flight programs and their crews.
