The Commanding Officer of NAS Pensacola welcomes you to the "Cradle of Naval Aviation" and continuation of flight training. Naval Air Station Pensacola was the only naval air station to exist in the world until the 1930's. Our contribution to the science of war in terms of air warfare at sea has had significant impact on our emergence as a world power and our national military might. Our national security strategy of "Engagement and Enlargement" is possible because of our carrier battle groups and their power projection capabilities while forward deployed, and all of that started and continues to start here!
