NALF Orange Grove

Navy Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF) Orange Grove is located in Jim Wells County about 40 miles northwest of NAS Kingsville. The site serves as an additional training site for Training Air Wing TWO as an extension of usable air sir space. The field consists of two 8,000-ft runways, a parking apron, air traffic control tower, a crash, fire, and rescue station, and a fully instrumental aircraft refueling station.

Accomplishments include the addition of a $5.6M Lighting Project in 2011; the construction of an Emergency Generator Building; the installation of new lighting and taxiway lights to the secondary ramp - which added 12 new parking spaces for aircraft during night operations in 2012; and the installation of a new airfield lighting control system - allowing all airfield lighting to be controlled from a single source earlier this year.
