Anchors Aweigh, my boys,
Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to foreign shores,
We sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.

Roll out the TNT,
Anchors Aweigh.
Sail on to victory
And sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!

There is, I’m sure, many a young person who grew up by the sea and hummed that tune over and over as they imagined themselves lashed to the deck of seafaring vessel, seeking out enemy ships to destroy and save the nation from various diabolical foes. However, if those youths had the blood of an aviator/aviatrix flowing through their veins, they would tend to take a different slant with their dreams. If you want to be a part of the Navy but prefer the air to sea, you should be most interested in THE BLUE ANGELS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING.

“I think,” TURBINE TRAINING’s President, Dale Wolcott, shared, “that there is no finer example of a boy wanting to become a Naval Aviator than Donnie Cochran.”

And, it would be hard to refute his claim. Cochran, who grew up on a small farm near Pelham, Georgia, began his love for Naval Aviation as he watched Navy planes fly over his farm. The seed that those planes planted in the fertile ground of Cochran’s imagination germinated and actually yielded the fulfillment of that dream.

“Not only did Cochran realize his dream,” Jason Wolcott, Vice President of TURBINE TRAINING, added, “his accomplishments are of near epic proportions.”

Jason is right, as these accomplishments include the fact that not only did he became the first African-American pilot to become a member of the Blue Angels, he also became the first African-American to become the commanding officer and flight leader of the world-renowned aerobatic team.
