As a result of the increasing importance of helicopter aviation within the Navy and the accelerating activity at the installation, Ellyson was redesignated a Naval Auxiliary Air Station in 1967, and then a full Naval Air Station in 1968.

Due to constant conflict with Pensacola’s civilian airport traffic pattern
and the reorganization of the Training Command in 1972, it was decided to close Ellyson & move helicopter training in 1973 to NAS Whiting Field.
