NAS FALLON is made up of active duty military, contractors and civilian workers. Known as the "Biggest Little Air Station in the World," NAS Fallon is home to the Navy's TOPGUN and TOPDOME schools where Carrier Air Groups from around the country come to train for air operations. When onboard, these training groups increase the base personnel of approximately 3,000 by 150%. Fallon’s MWR facilities are visited annually by more than 465,000 patrons. With your message displayed on banners, posters, marquees, theater slides, and more, you are supporting our military while receiving hundreds of thousands of exposures!

NAS Fallon is home to the Fighting Saints of VFC-13, the Desert Outlaws of Strike Fighter Weapons Det. and the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center. NAS Fallon serves as the Navy's premier tactical air warfare training center. Known throughout the Navy, it is 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. Originally designed as a primary base 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.

Contact us today for information on how you can reserve your preferred advertising on theater slides, in our Desert Views Magazine, on banners, posters, countertop signs or our MWR vehicle to start building your brand awareness with Fallon’s military consumers who contribute more than $31.5 million yearly to the area’s economy.
