Brewton Municipal Airport (FAA LID: 12J) is a city-owned public-use airport located 3 nautical miles (6 km) south of the central business district of Brewton, a city in Escambia County, Alabama, United States.[1] Originally constructed by the U.S. Navy during World War II as an auxiliary field to the Naval Air Station Pensacola complex, it was later redesignated as Navy Outlying Landing Field (NOLF) Brewton before being conveyed to the city of Brewton as a public use facility. Although under civilian ownership, the airfield still functions concurrently as NOLF Brewton and is used by Navy training aircraft located at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Florida.[2][3]

According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is categorized as a general aviation facility.[4]
