Naval Air Station Miramar is meant to reflect th existence and purpose of the RL Miramar naval facility.
The United States Navy Fighter Weapons School (NFWS), better known as Top Gun, was the ultimate Fighter School of the United States Navy and had its home at Naval Air Station Miramar in Miramar, California until 1996.
Top Gun was founded on 3rd March 1969 to train pilots air tactics to encounter the bad results of the fighter pilots in the Vietnam war. For the first time, the so called dissimilar air combat training (DACT) was introduced, in which the American pilots didn’t fight against the similar plane they were flying themselves but against different, often smaller, more maneuverable aircraft, such as the Soviet Migs were at the height of Miramar's NFWS era.

Welcome to US Navy's NAS Miramar.
NAS Miramar, at the moment in Tuarua Fiji's Du Sud Isle, is a Naval Air Station of Second Life's US Navy. It serves as the nest of the Third Fleet, harboring its assigned squadrons, among which VF-101 of Carrier Strike Group 11 (CSG 11).
List of mainstay units:
Air: VF-84, VF-154, HSC-13, HS-4, VRC-1, VT-10
Sea: USS Defiant FFG-69 and TFSO 1 and 2 groups
VF-101, VR-54, NFDT (Blue Angels), VFC-13
Just as the real NAS Miramar in Miramar, California, from 1969 to 1996, the Navy Fighter Weapons School (NFWS), aka Top Gun, is its primary role. A mix of theory and hands on training, flight and combat practice and a competition make for the NFWS program, after which the naval aviators who successfully complete the course receive Top Gun grade, the Top crew from each edition being given the option of remaining as instructors at Miramar.
What we do:
- Maintain the resident crews on a high level of readiness through regular missions in the area and in collaboration with other US Navy SL units, and assigned patrols along the most used routes to and from GOTO stations, bases and airports.
- Train the crews to the highest possible standard of expertise in their aircraft and mission types.
- Carry out Top Gun courses regularly, in order to keep the Fleet squadrons top crews in a high readiness status at full performance capability.
USNTPS - We also test aircraft for several SL manufacturers at the United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) which provides not only assessments for new Fleet assets but also help to improve the quality and performance of SL aviation products in general.
