What Is the Naval Air Station Oceana?
The Naval Air Station Oceana, commonly known as NAS Oceana, was commissioned in 1943 as a small swampy base and evolved into an astounding complex with seven miles of runways and almost 20 squadrons of elite aircraft technology.
Over 16,000 people work to keep the Virginia Beach Navy base operational — and they don't just build planes or repair them. They also train pilots and other personnel who serve worldwide. Home to some of the most daring pilots and their high-tech aircraft, NAS Oceana continues to grow and thrive as one of the most important military installations in the country.
