History 

1960 wurde die Staffel, als Teil der Trägergruppe CVSG-54, wieder aufgestellt. Die CVSG-54 setzte sich aus den Staffeln VS-22 und VS-32 zusammen die am Leitwerkscode AT erkennbar waren. Die VS-22 wurde mit der S2F-1F ausgerüstet und 1965 auf die leistungsstärkere S-2E umgeschult. Die CVSG-54 und mit ihr die VS-22 führten mehrere Einsatzfahrten ins Mittelmeer und den Atlantik auf dem Träger CVS-39 USS Lake Champlain durch. Zwischen 1965 und 1969 wurde die CVS-9 USS Essex der Träger der CVSG-54 und ab 1969 bis zu deren Auflösung die CVS-18 USS Wasp. 1974 verlegte die Staffel von der Heimatbasis Quonset Point in Rhode Island nach North Island um auf die Lockheed S-3A Viking umzuschulen. Die Staffel VS-22 fliegt heute die Lockheed S-3B Viking in der Trägergruppe CVW-3 und ist immer noch auf der atlantischen Seite der USA zu Hause.
