Welcome from the OIC

NSTI OICThe Naval Survival Training Institute (NSTI) is a component of the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) based in Pensacola, Florida. NSTI consists of a headquarters element and eight Aviation Survival Training Centers (ASTC’s) located at Patuxent River, MD; Norfolk, VA; Cherry Point, NC; Jacksonville, FL; Pensacola, FL; Miramar, CA; Lemoore, CA; and Whidbey Island, WA.

The mission of NSTI is to provide safe, effective, and relevant aviation survival and human performance training as the execution arm of the Chief of Naval Operations-mandated Naval Aviation Survival Training Program (NASTP). The focus of this training is to enhance the operational readiness of the joint warfighter, to include designated aviators and aircrew (joint and allied), student aviators and aircrew (joint and allied), contract pilots, selected passengers, project specialists, VIP’s, and USMC non-aircrew. Naval aviation survival training emphasizes mishap and accident prevention, enhancing and sustaining performance, and mishap survival. NSTI strives to provide the most up-to-date, operationally relevant training possible. By CNO direction, the Naval Aviation Survival Training Program (NASTP) Model Manager (NASTP-MM) conducts annual Site Safety and Standardization Inspections, Training Quality Assessments, and Quality Assurance & Revalidation (QA&R) Inspections of all eight ASTC's to ensure safety and standardization of operations. The NASTP-MM provides a central point of expertise for all NASTP issues.
