Are you looking for real estate near Pensacola NAS? The Pensacola Naval Air Station is the primary training base for aviators and Naval Flight Officers in the Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard - as well as being the home base of the Blue Angels. This air station, locally known as NAS, is one of the primary hubs in Pensacola living. The site currently occupied by NAS dates back to the 16th century when Spanish explorer Don Tristan de Luna founded a colony there. In fact, in May 2006 construction crews excavated a Spanish ship underneath NAS while building the new Swimmer School for the Naval Base.
In addition to their proximity to the Naval Air Station, most communities in this area boast easy access to Corry Station, downtown Pensacola, Perdido Key, the Naval Hospital and Pensacola's new VA Clinic: part of the VA Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System.
