Waldron Naval Outlying Landing Field is now used for circuit training of aircraft from NAS Corpus Christi. It is located west of this field and is mostly used by the T-6 Texans. When runway 13 is in use, expect aircraft to break overhead for a lefthand pattern with righthand circuits thereafter. From this field, movements at Corpus Christi can be seen and be read.
This small field has a southerly and a southeasterly runway with a small apron in the southeast, next to the tower.
Waldron Naval Outlying Landing Field is located west of NAS Corpus Christi. You can reach Waldron Field NOLF by taking the I-358 towards Padre island and leave to the right via Flour Bluff Drive towards spot 3 and 4, while taking Waldron Road towards spot 1 and 2.
