Aircraft Operated by VR-24



Rockwell CT39G Sabreliner

Designed by North American, later acquired by Rockwell International, the Sabreliner was developed in the late 1950s to meet an Air Force requirement for a light utility transport and trainer. In addition to obtaining earlier models as trainers in 1962 and 1963, the Navy began taking delivery of twelve "G" model Sabreliners in 1973. VR-24 received three Rockwell CT-39G aircraft in October of that year. The limited information available at this time indicates that VR-24 continued to operate CT-39Gs throughout the remainder of its operational history.
