N.A.S. Fallon, Van Voorhis Field, is located southeast of the city of Fallon in western Nevada. Fallon is home to the ‘Naval Aviation Warfighting
Development Center’ (NAWDC), the center of excellence for naval aviation training and tactics development. The base is also home to
VFC-13 ‘Saints’ Fighter Squadron Composite, flying the Northrop F-5 which provide adversary training for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps
squadrons, carrier air wings and Marine aircraft groups.
