Charlestown Naval Auxiliary Air Station (KALF), RI. The Charlestown Naval Auxiliary Air Station (NAAS) was built by the Navy in 1942 in Charlestown, Rhode Island as a satellite to Quonset Naval Air Station. During World War II it was used to train night fighter squadrons on the F6F Hellcat and TBM Avenger.

Charlestown Naval Aux. Station scenery in FSX.​In the late 50s and early 60s, it was used by the Coast Guard and for drag racing. The Navy closed Charlestown in 1974.

The Station is now part of Ninigret Park & Wildlife Refuge but the outlines of the runways can still be seen on satellite photos.

The model recreates Charlestown NAAS as it was about 1945.

Created by Fred Highland from aerial and satellite photos using Airport Design Editor.

This is an OUTSTANDING scenery. As a boy, Charlestown NAS in Charlestown, RI served for the Hellcat, Avenger, and S2 (Cod) as a staging and practice site for carrier landings. They continually flew over our campsite at Burlinggame State Campgroud in the late 50 's through early 60's. My love of aviation came from that experience as the pilots waved to us kids at the campground beach.

This scenery installed easily and is extremely enjoyable to use. Flying in that area is fun too. Fly to either Quonset NAS in N. Kingston or (which I hope someone will do scenery for) or Block Island (KBID) for a couple of short hops.
