The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that allows for the full or partial disclosure of releasable information and documents controlled by the United States government to any person including U.S. citizens, foreign government nationals, organizations, universities, businesses, and state and local governments.

This website is specific to the procedures that Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) Patuxent River follow for handling FOIA requests.

Please note, NAVAIR/NAWCAD FOIA is moving to a NEW case tracking system. We expect to begin moving to the new system in April 2024. There may be a temporary delay in response to your request while launching the new system.
