The Naval Academy Training Squadron, VT-NA, is a professional training organization at the United States Naval Academy dedicated to the cultivation and training of our nation's future Naval Aviators. VT-NA seeks to introduce future aviators to the principles and skills of aviation by maximizing training and exposure opportunities. VT-NA is the first step in educating the Midshipmen of the Naval Academy about the Naval Aviation community. The United States Naval Academy is the largest single commissioning source of Naval Aviators in the country, and plays a crucial stage in training before aviators arrive at Pensacola. VT-NA's long-term goal is to produce the highest caliber aviators by exposing Midshipmen to the fundamental elements of aviation as early as possible, so as to develop a fond and deep understanding of the profession, and cultivate a passion of flying in future Naval Aviators.
