The Coastal Patrol has been attracting more pilots, thanks to a new ad campaign in East River. The ad campaign called “Peast Criver” uses plays on letters and words to raise awareness of the Coastal Patrol and the role it is expanding.

“We’re seeing new areas to help people,” said the new spokesman for the group, “and that includes combat areas like Tulagi and domestically challenged areas like East River.”

In an unusual move for a waning energy company, UNO has sold a number of its helicopters to the Coastal Patrol. The Coastal Patrol has been increasing its presence in coastal areas, even going so far as to demand sobriety of some its squadrons.

The Claw has been using Archerfield (SLAL) for its ongoing “Doughnuts Dat R Da Bomb” campaign and it’s got the Coastal Patrol up in arms.

“We can’t believe that they would be so willing to have them there,” said a CP pilot we found in a Tulagi bar.

“They pay their tie down fees,” retorted an Archerfield night manager. “That’s more than I can say for the Coastal Patrol.”
