Since its humble beginnings almost a century ago, the facility has been at the forefront of weapon system sustainment, providing innovative Naval Aviation maintenance solutions utilizing the latest technologies. Today, as the Navy's premiere west coast Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facility, FRCSW specializes in the maintenance, engineering and logistics support for a wide range of high-performance aircraft; servicing more than 225 airframes and 35,000 components annually
Naval Air Station Lemoore
Commissioned in 1961, NAS Lemoore is the newest and largest Master Jet Base in the U.S. Navy. It has two offset parallel runways 4,600 feet (1,400 m) apart. Aircraft parking and maintenance hangars are aligned between the 13,500-foot (4,100 m) runways. Separated from the hangars by underpasses beneath taxiways A & C, the remainder of the air operations area is located directly southeast.
In July 1998, NAS Lemoore was selected as the West Coast site for the Navy's newest strike-fighter aircraft, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
