Welcome to Naval Air Station Key West!
Naval Air Station Key West has a long and proud history, and is currently the Navy's premier air-to-air combat training station and also home to a bustling port facility. The installation has been a part of the Key West community since 1917, when a coastal air station was built on Trumbo Point. The first naval flight recorded from the station was on Sept. 22, 1917, with Coast Guard Lt. Stanley Parker flying a Curtiss N-9 seaplane.
In 1945, after World War II, the Navy disestablished its satellite air fields and combined them into one aviation activity designated as U.S. Naval Air Station, Key West. It has served as a training facility since then, preparing hundreds of thousands of aviators from all services, as well as allied nations, to preserve peace and protect the nation.
