Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (MCAS Miramar) is located in Miramar, San Diego, California. It’s a crucial installation of the United States Marine Corps. Originally established as Naval Auxiliary Air Station (NAAS) Miramar, it later became Naval Air Station (NAS) Miramar before transitioning to USMC control. Currently, it is home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, part of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force.

MCAS Miramar is renowned as the world’s largest Master Jet Air Station. The airfield, named Mitscher Field since 1955 in honor of Admiral M.A. Mitscher, a World War II commander, has a rich history of military aviation. It is notably the former site of the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School’s TOPGUN training program, which relocated to Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada in 1996.

During World War I, Camp Kearny was established for infantry training. In World War II, the site transitioned to a Marine Corps and Navy air station, with significant runway expansions and operational changes.

Post-World War II, the Marines relocated to MCAS El Toro, and Miramar was redesignated NAS Miramar. The base experienced significant growth during the Vietnam War, developing into a Master Jet Station. The transition back to Marine Corps control occurred in 1997, following the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) recommendations in 1993.

Today, MCAS Miramar is a vital training and operational base for the USMC, accommodating numerous Marine aircraft and units. It focuses on providing advanced aviation training and support for various Marine Corps air operations. Despite its evolution over the decades, MCAS Miramar remains a significant and dynamic component of the USMC’s aviation capabilities.
