Welcome to Naval Air Station Whiting Field

Welcome to Naval Air Station Whiting Field, located in beautiful northwest Florida. Naval Air Station Whiting Field occupies approximately 12,000 acres, including 13 outlying fields with three separate and fully operational airfields.

Installation Information

Our mission is to produce the military’s best-trained “Aviation Warfighter." NAS Whiting Field is where the future of Naval Aviation begins. The installation hosts 21 tenant activities, including Training Air Wing FIVE, which produces more than 1,200 pilots a year. NAS Whiting Field is home to the largest air wing in the U.S. Navy and produces 100% of all Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard helicopter pilots. The wing also conducts 60% of Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) command's primary flight training. 

NAS Whiting Field operates 56% of the Navy's outlying landing fields, and 17% of all U.S. Navy flight hours are flown out of NAS Whiting. 





Have any helpful tips that will enhance NAS Whiting Field? Please Visit Our NAS Whiting Field CO Suggestions Box! 

The NAS Whiting Field CO Suggestion Program is designed to provide an easy and efficient way for any member in our community an equal opportunity to share your idea(s) about how we can make the base function better. Please note the NAS Whiting Field CO Suggestion Program does not deal with big Navy or workforce matters (i.e. workforce reductions or position eliminations) nor is it a vehicle to deal with employee grievances or workplace concerns as those items should be submitted through the normal channels or chain of command.
