Today, NAS Pensacola is a dynamic, active station, hosting several schools and several branches of the US military. It is also the home of the Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, as well as the renowned National Naval Aviation Museum which displays more than 100 years of naval aviation, from a replica Curtiss hydroplane to the F-14 Tomcat.
