WELCOME ABOARD NAVAL AIR STATION KEY WEST, FLORIDA

Naval Air Station Key West, Florida, is the U.S. Navy’s premier training station for tactical aviation squadrons. Local aerial ranges enable aviators to engage in training maneuvers within minutes of takeoff. This saves fuel, time and tax dollars. The station is equipped with a sophisticated tactical combat training system, similar to the one depicted in the popular 1986 movie “Top Gun,” which tracks and records combat aerial maneuvers. Training officers can use this system to watch their students’ flight performances in real time, and students can watch and critique their own flight performances on screen after training sessions. As a host station, NASKW provides and maintains facilities and services for tenants and ensures quality of life for personnel. The station is located within a national marine sanctuary. Mission is carefully integrated with the environment and in concert with the community.
