A Little History of NASNI...
In 1917, Naval Air Station San Diego was commissioned and later became Naval Air Station North Island. March 20, 1922, the first aircraft carrier, USS LANGLEY, was commissioned and stationed at NAS San Diego. In fact, in the 1920s and into the early 1930s, all Navy aircraft carriers were stationed at NAS San Diego for a time. During World War II, NAS North Island was a primary staging base for aircraft headed to the Pacific. It is fitting to kick off the yearlong commemoration here at the "Birthplace of Naval Aviation." Currently, NASNI is host to 142 tenant commands and is homeport to two aircraft carriers: USS Carl Vinson and USS Theodore Roosevelt.
