Welcome to Naval Air Facility El Centro

Naval Air Facility El Centro is located in the heart of Southern California's Imperial Valley. It is a two hour drive from San Diego and Palm Springs, one hour from Yuma, AZ, and fifteen minutes from the Mexican border.

With our year-round great flying weather and the proximity of several instrumented bombing ranges, we are an integral part of Naval Aviation Training.

Although small, NAF El Centro has a full array of support facilities: Commissary, Navy Exchange, Medical and Dental Clinics, Consolidated Officer/Chief Petty Officer and Enlisted Club, and a wide variety of recreational activities.

Our housing is far superior than that in most California locations. You will be impressed. We have 101 housing units for all pay grades available on base plus newly renovated barracks for our single Sailors.
