Another Pilot Commissioned in VFA-41!

They seem to show up in waves!  Nopro has also been granted a commission in VFA-41 at the rank of Ensign (ENS).  As the wax job on the XO's car is still fresh, Nopro will be attempting to impress the Training Officer with his 'wax on, wax off' skills.  Once the Training Officer's car has a gleam that's on par with the XO's, he also will begin the squadron's basic training and qualification program.  Get to work!  (Note: the squadron roster is now full again, meaning that recruitment is currently closed.)

Pilot Commissioned in VFA-41

That new guy running around with the crisp, new flight suit that still has the creases from the box?  That's none other than Razor, who has been granted a commission in VFA-41 at the rank of Ensign (ENS).  Once he has given the XO's car that signature Black Aces shine, he will be starting the squadron's basic training and qualification program to earn his wings as a Naval Aviator.  Welcome aboard!

VFA-41 Training Cycle Continues at Nellis AFB

Having returned recently from their overseas deployment in support of Operation Enduring Resolve, the Black Aces have transferred to Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas to take advantage of the training ranges in the desert.  The initial air-to-ground phase, comprised of gunnery, rockets, and unguided bombs, is now complete.  Range Operations has tallied up the results of the exercises.  Those pilots who met the high accuracy criteria at the CCIP bombing range have been awarded the Bombing Proficiency Ribbon shown here.  Squadron training is planned to continue for the next several weeks.
