About NAS San Diego, CA
Naval Air Station San Diego (also referred to as Naval Air Station North Island) is an aviation facility belonging to the United States Navy. It is located on the northern Coronado Peninsula as well as on the San Diego Bay in California.
The station was commissioned by the U.S. Navy in 1917, where it steadily grew into one of the military branch's most important aviation assets. It served as an integral part of the United States' Pacific operations during World War II, and was recognized by the House Armed Services Committee as the "Birthplace of Naval Aviation" in 1963.
As one of the largest aerospace employers in San Diego, NAS North Island hosts 23 aircraft squadrons and 80 additional tenants, with plenty of job opportunities for civilians. These additional tenants include the Naval Aviation Depot, which alone employs over 3,800 civilians.
