How do we do it?


ASAR National is a virtual, online, social media organization comprised of Search and Rescue Teams that use Powered Paragliders (PPGs) as their primary search platform. We are dedicated to perfecting search methods and inter-agency SOPs with other search teams, search tacticians and law enforcement and fire/rescue agencies.

Who can join?

ASAR National is open to any individuals who form a team of at least two persons; a pilot and ground support and who can demonstrate that they bring positive skills to the development of PPG platformed, airborne search and rescue; including support rolls like all-terrain vehicles, watercraft, aviation, canines, SAR experience, fire/rescue, law enforcement, forestry, natural resources, etc.

Your Squadron shoulder patch logo

In creating your Squadron and squadron shoulder patch, please keep the following design criteria in mind. You squadron number should be 3 digits (e.g. 505th, 273rd, etc. Include a squadron moniker (e.g. "Swamp Things", "Sky Sailors", etc.) The 451st are the "Red Angels."

ASAR National is an information resource only. It does not recommend any of its members for any specific operation nor vouch for the character or abilities of any of the team personnel. Each team must develop its own skills, relationships and reputation, document its successes, and vet its members for their suitability as a team member. All information presented here is done so with good intention and for entertainment purposes. Any information taken from this website that is adopted and executed is done so at the user's own risk. Powered para-glider flying can be dangerous to pilots as well as ground crew. ASAR National does hope to become a resource for law enforcement and fire/rescue and to assist them by forwarding to member ASAR teams all information concerning ongoing searches so that members may offer and provide their assistance or learn from the experiences of others.
