NAS Lemoore

F-35C West Coast Training Installation

Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, is the first West Coast naval installation with F-35Cs permanently assigned.

The Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 125 Rough Raiders were reestablished as a training squadron in January 2017 when four F-35Cs made their arrival at the base. The jets ferried from Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, where they were part of the Navy’s first F-35C Fleet Replacement Squadron, the Grim Reapers of VFA-101.
