Upon arrival to Naval Air Weapons Station (NAWS) China Lake, California, go through the main gate and drive through the traffic circle as if you were still going straight. Look for the second street on your left (Hussey Road). At the third driveway take a right into the China Lake Visitors Quarters parking lot. Your room will already be reserved in your name prior to arrival if we knew you were coming. The Visitor Quarters staff will give you an information sheet with all the command telephone numbers and where to go for your first day of the course. On most occasions, we meet in front of the Visitors Quarters office at 7 a.m. Monday morning (Tuesday mornings if the Monday is a holiday). The first day of the course we will take care of pay issues, additional check-in procedures and any personal needs you may need for your stay in China Lake.
