Naval Outlying Field Spencer (ICAO: KNRQ, FAA LID: NRQ) is a military airport located two miles (3 km) northeast of Pace, Florida, in Santa Rosa County. It is owned by the United States Navy.[1] NOLF Spencer is one mile north of U.S. Highway 90, 3.5 miles west of the City of Milton, just over 6 miles east of the Escambia River and about 7 miles southwest of NAS Whiting Field.[2] This airfield is situated on 640 acres (259 ha) and has eight runways, all 1800 feet long by 200 feet wide. These runways are arranged to make two squares, one whose vertices approximately point North, South, East and West, and another which lies directly on top but is rotated 45°. Its mission is to support helicopter operations of the Naval Air Training Command and it remains under the control of Commander, Training Air Wing FIVE at nearby NAS Whiting Field.[3]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Naval Outlying Field Spencer is assigned NRQ by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[4]
