Located adjacent to the National Naval Aviation Museum, the National Flight Academy is a 102,000 sq. ft. four-story structure designed to be fully and intensively immersive. The NFA’s adventure begins with our landlocked, virtual aircraft carrier, Ambition (CVT-11). Each deck of Ambition is designed scenically and theatrically to simulate a modern aircraft carrier. The first deck houses the galley, mess deck, administrative spaces and the aircraft hangar bays. The second deck is dedicated to academic spaces including the operations and intelligence centers. The third and fourth decks house berthing (crew quarters), lounges and activity rooms. The facility is designed in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Security personnel monitor through video surveillance and on-site patrols the entire ship (the facility) on a 24-hour basis. For more information the security company used for overnight hours, please see the following link: Securitas Security Services.
