In 1954, the Navy searched the central California area for land to build a master jet air station – one with congestion-free air space. Lemoore was chosen because of its central location, good weather for flying, relatively inexpensive land and nearby accommodations.


NAS Lemoore’s primary mission is to support fleet carrier squadrons. The heart of the mission is the operational area. Designed to support more than 20 fleet squadrons, it serves as master training center for the carrier-based strike fighter squadrons of the Pacific Fleet.
