Blue Angels Air Practices

Beginning in March each year, when the Blues are in town, you can see them practice Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 11:30 a.m. After practice on select Wednesdays, visitors and locals can meet the pilots, take photos with them and even get their autographs. Practices and meet-and-greets are held at the National Naval Aviation Museum, one of the world's largest air and space museums. Also at the museum, visitors can visit the Blue Angels Atrium to have their photos taken with real Blue Angels aircraft, positioned in flying formation. See below for our list of upcoming Blue Angels air practices!

Use Alternate Routes to Blue Angels Practices

If you are planning to attend upcoming Blue Angels' practices at the National Naval Aviation Museum beginning Wednesday, March 21, you are asked to take specific routes to help alleviate traffic issues in the area:

  1. Blue Angel practice-related traffic coming from the Perdido Key area should take Sorrento Road and then travel south on Blue Angel Parkway, leaving Gulf Beach Highway open to local traffic.
     
  2. Blue Angel practice-related traffic traveling from the eastern and northern parts of the county should merge on to Blue Angel Parkway at the most northern point possible.  

Additionally, parking on the rights of way in many portions of Old Gulf Beach Highway and Blue Angel Parkway is no longer permissible for safety and security. Signs are posted.
