NAVAL AIR STATION PENSACOLA

CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION 1914-2014

Pensacola is marking the 100th anniversary of Naval Air Station Pensacola in a big way! Events throughout 2014 will highlight the history and impact of NAS Pensacola on the entire Northwest Florida region. It is doubtful that Captain Washington Irving Chambers could have foreseen the future when he recommended the establishment of an aviation training station in Pensacola in October of 1913. Long known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation,” NAS Pensacola’s story is large and significant…and in 2014, the community will celebrate all of it.
