Naval Air Station Kingsville or NAS Kingsville is a military airport located 3 miles east of Kingsville, Texas.

Under the current US Navy organization known as Commander, Naval Installations (CNI), NAS Corpus Christi and NAS Kingsville are part of Navy Region Southeast headquartered at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. Both facilities were previously under the since-disestablished Navy Region South, where the rear admiral serving as Region Commander and as Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) were the same individual.

NAS Kingsville’s operation is the natural complement of NAS Corpus Christi. NAS Kingsville operates higher performance single engine aircraft, generally over land. Distance, rather than safety or capacity concerns, limits NAS Kingsville use of overwater areas.

NAS Kingsville also organizes and hosts the annual Wings Over South Texas Air Show.
