Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 115 “Eagles”


Maintain and deploy the F/A-18 to win in combat.

About Us

The Eagles of Strike Fighter Squadron 115 continue a proud legacy that dates to the dark months following the attacks on Pearl Harbor.  Originally founded as Torpedo Squadron ELEVEN (VT-11) on 10 October 1942, the Eagles and their predecessors have been involved in every major American conflict since World War II.

In 1996, VA-115 transitioned from the venerable Intruder to the FA-18C Hornet and moved to Lemoore, California. Newly redesignated Strike Fighter Squadron 115’s (VFA-115) time with the Hornet was to be short-lived.  After only two deployments with CVW-14 onboard USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the Eagles were selected to be the first squadron to transition to the FA-18E Super Hornet. In February 2001 VFA-115 returned from its last WESTPAC in the Hornet and successfully transitioned to the Super Hornet in less than 100 days.

The F/A-18E Super Hornet aircraft we fly is the world's most advanced strike fighter. Designed to operate from a carrier, the Super Hornet is fully capable in both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. 

The Super Hornet is the second major model upgrade since the inception of the F/A-18 aircraft program highly capable across the full mission spectrum: air superiority, fighter escort, reconnaissance, aerial refueling, close air support, air defense suppression and day/night precision strike.
