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.
