Kitesurfer/Coast Guard Pilot lost in Helo Crash – Help Out the Family

coastguardkitesurfer.jpg

Lt. Commander Andy Wischmeier, an avid kitesurfer, was one of four in a Coast Guard helicopter crew that was lost last week in a crash near Honolulu during training. All four crewmen were married and had kids. Andy Wischmeier’s wife Sue is also a kitesurfer. The Coast Guard Foundation is taking donations for family relief and scholarships. I work with my local USCG air crews through the Coast Guard Auxiliary and these are the consummate professionals that you want in the air when you are offshore and the sun is setting. This is a loss that is felt throughout the Coast Guard.
