New personnel are strongly advised to coordinate assistance with their command sponsor for the check-in process. When checking in during working hours (0700-1600, Monday through Friday), new check-ins should proceed to the third level on the EF side of the VFA-106 Hangar (the EF side is the right side of the hangar as you look at the hangar from the security gate). New command members will check-in initially with the Admin Office located on the third level of the EF side of the hangar.
If you arrive during non-working hours, proceed to the Ready Room to check-in with the Assistant Squadron Duty Officer (ASDO). The Ready Room is located on the third level of the CD side of the hangar (this is the side that is just left of the EF side as you face the hangar; it is actually the middle of the hangar between the EF side and the VFA-87 side of the hangar). Make sure that ASDO endorses your orders for the date and time of your arrival to the command. Report to Admin as described above during the next normal working day.
To contact Admin prior to check-in, please call (757) 433-9026 or (757) 433-9036. To contact the Ready Room, call (757) 433-9067. If you are unsure of who your sponsor is, contact the Command Sponsor Coordinator at (757) 433-9026.
Note: Bring all records, orders, endorsements, travel-related receipts, new address, etc. After hours, please make sure you leave a good contact number (i.e. cell phone/relative/friend), in case we need to reach you prior to the next work day.
