Home of the World Famous "Bear Aces"!
Welcome to Airborne Command & Control Squadron (VAW) 124! Located onboard Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, the Bear Aces report operationally to Commander, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 8 and administratively to Commander, Airborne Command & Control and Logistics Wing (ACCLW). We fly the E-2C Hawkeye and will soon be transitioning to the next generation E-2D. Our all-weather aircraft is equipped with the advanced AN/APS-145 radar as well as a suite of other communications, data management, and information relay systems that allow us to be effective battle managers. We act as the “Quarterbacks of the Sky” providing critical tactical command and control in support of Carrier Strike Group 12 in missions such as airborne early warning, air intercept control, surface surveillance coordination, strike coordination, and offensive air support.
