Spotlight on Southern Maryland

Nestled in St. Mary’s County, where the waters of the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay meet, sits Naval Air Station Patuxent River (NAS). The installation is home to the headquarters for the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), and affiliated Program Executive Offices.

NAS, known locally as “Pax River,” conducts over 200,000 air operations annually and continues to be the key driving force in local job growth. Because of MIL’s unprecedented work expansion at Pax River, we’re looking to hire new staff at all levels.
