Naval Air Station Sigonella is a U.S. Navy installation at NATO Base Sigonella and an Italian Air Force base in Sicily, Italy. It is located 15 km west and 11 km south of the city of Catania, and some 40 km south of Mount Etna. The United States Naval Air Facility (NAF), Sigonella, was established 15 June 1959; its first commanding officer was Captain Walter J. Frazier. The facility was conceived in the early 1950s, when plans to base U.S. Navy P2V Neptunes at Hal Far, Malta began to outgrow the facility.
