Welcome to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 211 website! Located onboard Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia. The Checkmates report operationally to Commander, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 11 and administratively to Commander, Strike Fighter Wing, Atlantic. We fly the single seat variant of the Navy’s strike fighter aircraft the F/A-18E Super Hornet. The F/A-18E was designed for traditional air superiority, fighter escort, reconnaissance, aerial refueling, close air support, forward air control (airborne), air defense suppression and day/night precision strike; the F/A-18E at the same time increases strike mission survivability and supplements the fleet air defense. We deploy on board the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) as part of CVW-11.
