VAQ-129 is the United States Navy’s Fleet Replenishment Squadron for EA-6B Prowlers and EA-18G Growlers. Serving the United States Navy, United States Marine Corps and United States Air Force, the Vikings of VAQ-129 train freshly pinned Naval Aviators and Naval Flight Officers. VAQ-129 also provides training for transitioning and the continuing education of Aviators and NFOs who have been to the fleet.
VAQ-129 has the pleasure of rolling out the EA-18G Growler to the Navy. This transition period from the EA-6B to EA-18G began in June 2008, and will continue for the foreseeable future.
VAQ-129 also develops and revises standard operating procedures for maintenance and operation programs for the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler. Similarly to the Aviators and NFOs, 129 maintainers train maintenance personnel from squadrons transitioning from the EA-6B to EA-18G on the latest procedures for the Growler.
