The NAS Pensacola based U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to their home base following the March 11 air show season opening performance at Naval Air Facility El Centro in California. The team has been in California preparing for the 2017 show season since early January, practicing as many as three times a day, six days a week. The team is scheduled to return to Pensacola on March 20, with the first public practice scheduled March 28 at 11:30 a.m. behind the National Naval Aviation Museum onboard NAS Pensacola.
The Blue Angels Homecoming shows at NAS Pensacola are scheduled Nov. 10-11. The Pensacola Beach Air Show is scheduled July 8.
A total of 17 officers voluntarily serve with the Blue Angels. Each year the team typically selects three tactical (fighter or fighter/attack) jet pilots, two support officers and one Marine Corps C-130 pilot to relieve departing members.
Career-oriented officers specializing in maintenance, administration, aviation medicine, public affairs and supply fill support positions. The Blue Angels base their selection of officers on professional ability, military bearing and communication skills. Officers typically serve two years with the team. Blue Angels officers return to the fleet after their tours of duty.
The mission of the Blue Angels is to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach.
