About the Ebook
Take a visual tour of Naval Air Facility El Centro, the "Pearl of the Desert," as captured through the lenses of the Arizona Aviation Photographers club. See the sailors and contractors at work, making this busy base run and keeping its visiting aircraft flying. Get up close and personal with virtually every aircraft type currently flown by the US Navy and Marine Corps, including F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets, T-45 Goshawks, EA-6B Prowlers, EA-18G Growlers, C-2 Greyhounds, E-2 Hawkeyes, AH-1 Cobras, UH-1 Hueys, CH-53 Super Stallions, and V-22 Ospreys. Get an inside look at the allied aviation units that also use NAF El Centro for critical pre-deployment training, including the British Joint Helicopter Command and the Royal Canadian Air Force's CF-18 Hornet community.
Proceeds from the sale of this book go to directly benefit the sailors of NAF El Centro.

Founded in 2009, Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) is a group composed of Arizona-based photographers with a shared interest in aviation. Many members are veterans of the armed forces, others work in the aerospace field, some work as full-time professional photographers, some are pilots, and others are aviation enthusiasts with a passion for photography. AzAP's mission is to provide a means for Arizona-based photographers to record and preserve the southwest’s rich aviation heritage, both current and historical; to establish and maintain a forum for sharing and promoting each photographer’s unique vision and perspective on aviation-related subjects; to provide a mechanism to encourage and assist in further development and self-improvement as photographers; and to serve as an aviation-media resource for news media, museums, military, and the aerospace industry.
