Overview: There are four bases here in the Pensacola area. They are Naval Air Station Pensacola, Corry Station, Saufley Field and Whiting Field.. Your sailor’s rate and his assigned A-school will determine which base they will be housed. 99% of the enlisted sailors are located on either NAS Pensacola or Corry Station. Saufley Field is primarily a Federal Prison and Whiting Field’s primary mission is Helicopter Flight School.
Naval Air Station Pensacola is located in the southwest part of Pensacola on the water. It is a huge base and is open to the public.
