Chinese Exchange Students Tour U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City

Posted: Updated:

A rare opportunity for some foreign exchange students, getting an up close look at a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter. It's all part of a Chinese Exchange Program at Traverse City Central and Traverse City West Senior High Schools.

Today, the Chinese exchange students took a tour through U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City. They learned everything from what the inside of the helicopter looks like, to how the men and women of the Coast Guard perform search and rescue. The visit comes after Traverse City students traveled to China this past fall. This week, the exchange students have experienced everything from a normal day in school to sporting events.
