Moonlight State Beach Fire Rescue Huey
While on a training flight in 2014 we landed and shut down on the improved helicopter LZ at Moonlight State Beach in Encinitas. My instructor pilot, Tony Webber, AKA; "TWebb" or "WorldWideWeB" is standing next to the helicopter just before departure.
ASTREA (Aerial Support To Regional Enforcement Agencies) has always maintained an excellent working relationship with the Life Guards along San Diego's Coastline, particularly the cities that are contract cities patrolled by the Sheriff's Department such as Encinitas, Del Mar, and Solona Beach.
The life guard in the picture doubles as a Cal-Fire Fireman and has previously worked as a Helitack crew member on the pictured helicopter.
