Abstract: Several different aircraft have been used in aviation search and rescue mission. The use of the aircraft in such mission has been mostly for common purpose of scouring the sea or land to identify and locate the victims. In addition, they are also utilized for rescue mission with some specialized equipment onboard. This study aims to identify the myriad of aircraft that have been used in the aviation search and rescue mission, and perform the simplistic analysis on their common and uncommon denominators. Based on the results, it has been established that these aircraft often have a small capacity and perimeter coverage, with low flight pace and rate of climb performance capabilities.
