Welcome to Naval Air Station Fallon

In Northern Nevada's high desert!

Installation Information

Home to the Fighting Saints of VFC-13, the Desert Outlaws of Strike Fighter Wing Pacific. and the Naval Strike Air Warfare Center, NAS Fallon serves as the Navy’s premier tactical air warfare training center.

“Train the way you fight; fight the way you train.”

Known throughout the Navy as the only facility in existence where an entire carrier air wing can conduct comprehensive training while integrating every element of the wing into realistic battle scenarios. Fallon enjoys more than 300 clear flying days per year and gets the most out of each of those days with its four bombing ranges, the electronic warfare range and all of its other excellent training facilities. The 14,000-foot runway remains the longest in the Navy, making Fallon a one-stop training facility unequaled throughout the service.

From its beginnings as a WWII Army Air Corps airstrip in the early 1940s, Fallon has served many different missions throughout the years. Originally designed as a fall-back airstrip to launch missions against a Japanese strike against the West coast, the air station has evolved into a versatile, comprehensive training facility known to aviators around the world as the pinnacle of air warfare training.

Over 3,000 active duty personnel, civilian employees and DoD contractors enjoy a high quality of life that is enhanced by the numerous facilities on base and by those within the surrounding areas. Beautiful housing, convenient shopping and exciting recreational facilities provide a comfortable life on the base and the natural beauty of the Northern Nevada high desert as well as the exhilarating attractions of nearby Reno present a wide variety of recreational and sightseeing options for residents of NAS Fallon. Although relatively isolated, NAS Fallon is only a short drive from some of the finest outdoor recreation areas in the country. If not all there is to do here—check out the ghost towns, historical sites and old mines to hear of Nevada’s Old West past. There’s all of this in addition to big city excitement, too. There’s Carson City, Nevada’s state capitol and Reno with its 24-hour entertainment. Both are only an hour away from Fallon.
