Beginning with the TBF/TBM Avenger, the "Eagles" of VFA-115 have flown some of the most storied aircraft in carrier Aviation including the Douglas A-1 Skyraider, the Grumman A-6 Intruder, and the Boeing F/A-18C Hornet. In 2002, VFA-115 again made history in becoming the first squadron to fly the Navy's most advanced Strike-Fighter today, the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Today, VFA-115 is based at MCAS Iwakuni, Japan and deploys with Carrier Air Wing FIVE onboard the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) , America's only forward deployed carrier. Through their annual deployments in the FDNF, the Eagles of VFA-115 continue in their squadron's rich legacy of defending the Pacific and carry on its tradition of excellence in Naval Service. EFR!
