“Recognizing budget realities, current defense policy states that outreach events can only be supported with local assets at no cost to the government,” Lt. Aaron V. Kakiel, assistant public affairs officer for the commander of Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet said in a statement. “This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating forward now and those training to relieve them.”

The Blue Angels will continue to train to maintain flying proficiency until further notice at its home station in Pensacola, Fla., he said.
