Naval Air Station Corpus Christi
Constructed in 1941, the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Truax Field began training over 300 naval student pilots a month. Located in Corpus Christi on the stunning Texas Gulf Coast, the station's youngest pilot was former President George H.W. Bush – who graduated in the third class in 1943.
More than 35,000 naval aviators were trained at the station since the end of World War II. By 1944, the station was the world's largest naval aviation training facility, encompassing 20,000 acres and six auxiliary air stations.
The station was home to the United States Navy's Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, from 1951 to 1954. The station also houses the world's largest helicopter repair facility, Corpus Christi Army Depot and the Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi.
