Plans being discussed for the future of NAS Pensacola

The future of Naval Air Station Pensacola.   

That was the topic of discussion during the panhandle Tiger Bay Club meeting .
The commanding officer of the base, Captain Keith Hoskins, was the guest speaker.
He talked about what is being done to improve operations and training aboard the base.
He also touched on some of the challenges, including the fiscal uncertainty in Washington.
But, Captain Hoskins says despite the problems, NAS Pensacola is ready to respond.

"That's why I'm here in Pensacola because I like the challenges. I'm an eternal optimist and I tell ya what, we are going to continue to do well and focus on the future and remain viable."

Captain Hoskins took over command of NAS Pensacola in March.
