An Outlying Landing Field, or Naval Outlying Landing Field, is an auxiliary airfield, associated with a Naval Air Station, used by the United States Navy.

Having no based units or aircraft and minimal facilities, an outlying landing field is used as a low-traffic location for flight training, without the risks and distractions of other traffic at a naval air station or other airport.
