The Blue Angels began 2015 winter training recently. The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron is training for the 2015 air show season at El Centro, California. Want to find out what it’s like to ride along with the Blue Angels? We’ll show you!
The Navy’s Blue Angels are not easing into their daily training like many of us do when we take a few months off from our daily workouts at the gym. Instead, they are on a very aggressive daily training schedule to prepare for the physically demanding air show demonstrations.

Blue Angels Train Hard for 2015 Season
Members of the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels train from sunup to sundown during winter training. According to a Navy blog post, this means that members of the squadron training flight schedule includes, “two to three flights a day for both the Diamond formation (which includes Boss and pilots 2, 3 and 4) and the Solos (pilots 5 and 6).”
Navy Public Affairs Officer, Lt.j.g. Amber Lynn Daniel, wrote the blog post about the Blue Angels beginning 2015 winter training and she was given the opportunity to ride along with the elite Navy flight squadron during practice sessions. She offers an excellent first-person point of view of how the Blue Angels train. Give the Navy Blue Angels blog post a read when you get a chance.
While the write-up offers an excellent insider’s look at the Blue Angels training, it is nothing like seeing what it is like to fly along with the squadron from inside the cockpit. That’s why we shared the videos below. Enjoy!
