Naval Aeronautic Station
The Naval Aeronautic Station was a predecessor to the modern Naval Air Station Pensacola. It was established on January 20, 1914, when a detachment of nine officers and 23 men were transferred from Annapolis to the abandoned Pensacola Navy Yard upon the recommendation of Captain W. I Chambers.
The flight school was operational by February.
