Since 1996, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Air Group has been providing air assets to assist with Search and Rescue, Smoke Patrols, and Law Enforcement missions in Northern Arizona.

Based at the Ernest A. Love Field (PRC) in Prescott, Arizona the YCSAG volunteer members meet regularly for meetings and training sessions in preparation for aerial search and rescue missions.

Operating privately owned aircraft, members regularly contribute to successful rescue efforts. Many of these were reduced to hours of searching instead of several days which was typical before the group’s formation.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s Air Group meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month in the old Terminal Building at KPRC. The Board meeting starts at 5:30 pm and the general meeting at 6:00 pm.

In addition to state and county resources, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department has several volunteer organizations at their disposal to contribute to search efforts. Whether by foot, horseback, four-wheel-drive vehicle, or by air, these dedicated individuals give thousands of man-hours annually to make our part of Arizona a safer place for everyone.

Pilot Requirements: Private Pilots License and own an aircraft
