Check-In Procedures

   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 Admin Office on the third deck E/F side of the VFA-106 Hangar (the E/F side is to the right side as you look at the hangar from the security gate).  

   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 C/D side of the hangar (this is the middle of the hangar between E/F and VFA-87).  Make sure the 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.
