Landivisiau June 29th 1997


Following the development of carrier aviation in the jet age and the "overpopulation" of the NAS Hyeres , the General Staff decided to build a new naval air station Britain where there was already a big presence of the navy.

And so NAS Landivisiau was born . It extends over 370 hectares Landivisiau is the name of the largest city near the base. The construction of the base started in 1963 and was finished two years later. 1 February 1965, General de Gaulle inaugurated the new NAS.

Landivisiau is the home base of the carrier wing. These aircraft operate normally from the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, but can also deployed to ground bases. Thus, the naval air station Landivisiau is a real "top gun" base.

The first unit allocated to Landivisiau was 11F on 2 May 1967. It was soon followed by 15F 1 August 1967. Both equipped with Etendard IV . The first Crusader (F8E) arrived on 1 August 1967 with the creation of fleets 12F and 14F. 15F Flotilla was disbanded on 1 January 1969 and replaced three months later by the Flotilla 16F, equipped with Etendard IV P .
At the same time, the section Fouga Zephyr , intended to undertake the tasks of routes for the authorities and flight training blind, was created. It was replaced on 1 May 1972 by SRL (Section Reactor Landivisiau), equipped with Morane MS 760 Paris (and 10 Sea Falcon from 1975) and by 57S 1 September 1981.

The Super Etendard , intended to replace the Etendard IV M of 11E, arrived for the first time in Landivisiau on July 27, 1978.
On 18 April 1979, 14F is, in turn, equipped with Super-Etendard (replacing the Crusader ), before being mothballed July 10, 1991. In July 1993, 17F, established in HyŤres in 1958 and equipped with Super-Etendard moved to Landivisiau . This year , all the Falcon 10 MER are grouped in Landivisiau to 57S, while Morane Paris are removed from service
