Become part of history: SL Coast Guard Opens Museum. Join us on February 4th at 12pm SLT

In 2005 a group was formed with a strong mission in mind.  The mission was to educate real life safe boating practices to the residents of Second Life.  And since this group formed, it has grown exponentially.  And now in its twelfth year of service to the SL grid, it has become one of the largest, and most active groups of maritime safety of its kind.  But, this was a journey that only the persistent and brave could endure.  

The SL Coast Guard has endured and gone farther than the founder had ever expected.  The members of the group come from all over the globe, and from all walks of life.  This is a group entirely based on Volunteers who like mindedly share the mission to educate real life boating safety.  The stations and substations are located throughout the continents of the main lands of Second Life, and groups of regions that contain large expanses of open waters.

The SL Coast Guard has been active since the inception of the group.  The group has evolved to doing more than just boating.  They employ eight, both fixed and rotor, aircraft as well as having over eight watercraft from motor powered to sailing craft.  Every member is thoroughly trained on the operation of the vessels they use on patrols.  Along with boating and aviation training, their members also may take up dive, search and rescue, medical, leadership,and honor guard training.

On February 4, 2017 at Noon SLT, the SL Coast Guard would like to thank the residents of Second Life for their participation in keeping their mission going.  They would like to formally invite you to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating the years of their involvement in the open waters Linden Labs opened up for all to enjoy.  The dress attire is formal.

Please don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime event.  This is not just a history of the SL Coast Guard, but a history of us, the residents within Second Life.  Speakers to include:  Sanstrom Laxness, Tig Spijkers, and RJ Kikuchiyo.  And presentations of retirement to their retired Admirals and staff will be given out.

The museum is packed with a history of each of the stations, vessels both air and sea, and people involved in their journey.  But, none of this could not have happened if people of Second Life weren’t out on the waters, or in the air.  Along with the rich history the SL Coast Guard has forged, they have been able to create relationships with various landowners, and have been involved with other groups who share similar visions.

In Second Life, we can find a variety of places related to flying where the visitor can enjoy the skies of this digital environment and have some fun. Some regions in-world can provide that complete experience of flying in a way you will feel like you are a real pilot.
There are more than 5000 aircraft models available. You can choose between: airplanes, helicopters, hovercraft lighter than air, and even rockets and spaceships. You can buy them in stores around the world. Each one works differently and has unique devices so you should take a little time to read the instruction manual. Those notes are usually in the same file as the vehicle and are written by the creator himself.     
If you are a beginner, the first step is to get a cheap aircraft to get some experience. After you are familiar with its controls, then you can invest in something more complex and have big adventures in the SL skies.
You don’t need too much money to start this new dream. At the marketplace there are more than 500 aircraft and the prices range from 0 to 10 lindens. Some of them are really fun for your first adventure.
You will find out with your aircraft that crossing the skies can be a little hard. That’s normal and it’s not the vehicle’s fault, but maybe the slow rendering of some regions.

Those first adventures can get you excited, and they may convince you to invest something a little more advanced. There are some full-functioning mesh models, with modeling optimized for the Second Life systems and advanced scripting. Those advanced ones are not that heavy in terms of prims, which means a smooth border crossing and little problematic lag. These models cost from 3000 to 5000 L.
Aircraft in Marketplace:

I found Mr. Gabriel at the Hollywood airport; he is an experienced commander of an air taxi company in SL. Here is what he suggests:
Camury: Gabriel, I see that Mr. Gabriel is a Vulture Air Captain.
Gabriel  (menino.clip):  Yes, I am a commander.
Camury: What is Vulture Air?
Gabriel (menino.clip):  It's an airline; we do flights, cargo, and passengers (GridEX).
Camury:  Why did you decide to become a pilot?
Gabriel (menino.clip):  I’m a commercial airplane single and multiengine and helicopter pilot in real life, so this is what i enjoy doing in Second Life as well.
Camury:  What does it take to be a good SL pilot?
Gabriel (menino.clip): Well, just look both ways before crossing a runway and be patient with other traffic in the airport. it doesn't take much.
Camury:  Do you have any advice for beginners?
Gabriel (menino.clip): Just learn the basic airport signs. Flying in Second Life is really easy so if you're aware of what's going on around you; it shouldn’t be too complicated.
Camury: What may be complicated?
Gabriel (menino.clip): Well, getting around big airports without getting anyone mad at you. If you don't have any experience, I guess that's the hardest part because once you're in the air everything is fine.
Camury: In your opinion, which LMs are the best for flying?
Gabriel (menino.clip): I enjoy flying around Hollywood airport and second Norway as well as Seychelles airport is also a good option.

Camury: Mr. Gabriel, is there anything else you think is important for our readers?
Gabriel (menino.clip): just enjoy what you're doing. If you love aviation, you're going to search for information and you're going to learn how to fly. Don't wait for people to teach you; go after what you want to accomplish. If you really learn how to fly and want to join a group of people who are experts in what they do, then show up here in Vulture Air for an evaluation flight.
Camury: Thank you, Mr. Gabriel
Please, take a look at the flying-related lands. There are some cool activities for you to experience.
Hollywood airport
Second Norway airport
Seychelles  airport

I think flying is one of the best experiences that we can have as a human. So, do your own! Take your plane and fly through the clouds in the beautiful blue sky in SL.
