The Maibatsu Lifeguard Helicopter (also known as the Lifeguard Frogger) is a helicopter in Grand Theft Auto V. They can often be seen flying over Vespucci Beach and Del Perro Beach.


The Lifeguard Helicopter is a variant of the Frogger, featuring a bright yellow body and white vinyl design. The helicopter is used by the Los Santos Lifeguard to patrol the beaches from the air.

  • The Lifeguard Helicopter is simply refered to as 'Frogger' in game, similar to how the Newsvan is simply refered to as 'Rumpo'.
  • It can be seen as a successor to the cut Coastguard Maverick from SA/VC.
  • Despite the fact that belongs to the Lifeguard, no specified labels are seen in or on it (like Lifeguard SUV, Blazer and Seashark). Instead, it's colored like civilian Froggers (with the stripe over the cab).


  • Despite rumors that it can spawn on helipads in Del Perro Beach and Vespucci Beach, no example of this has been seen so far. Lifeguard helicopters appear to only spawn in the air above beaches, flown by an NPC and normally locked to players regardless. There is one known method for obtaining one from the NPC flying it, however it requires a great deal of skill and luck. To get it, you need to destroy it with a Buzzard until its engine breaks (once the engine starts shutting off a couple times for a few seconds, leave it, as the engine will eventually completely break), it will slowly start to descend, when it's low, quickly determine where it's going to land, and get down to the ground before it does. As soon as it hits the ground, quickly enter it, you will not be able to enter it if the pilot & passenger hop out. Once you take it, quickly switch characters.
