General Information

Eglin Air Force Base (VPS) is located approximately 3 miles southwest of Valparaiso, Florida. The base covers approximately 463,128 acres.

The host unit at Eglin is the 96th Test Wing (96 TW). The 96 TW is the test and evaluation center for Air Force air-delivered weapons, navigation and guidance systems, Command and Control systems, and Air Force Special Operations Command systems.

Eglin AFB was established in 1935 as the Valparaiso Bombing and Gunnery Base. It is named in honor of Lieutenant Colonel Frederick I. Eglin (1891–1937), who was killed in a crash of his Northrop A-17 pursuit aircraft on a flight from Langley to Maxwell Field, Alabama.

Eglin is an Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) base serving as the focal point for all Air Force armaments. Eglin is responsible for the development, acquisition, testing, deployment and sustainment of all air-delivered non-nuclear weapons.

The base plans, directs and conducts test and evaluation of U.S. and allied air armament, navigation and guidance systems, and command and control systems.

Severe weather testing of aircraft and other equipment is carried out here at the McKinley Climatic Laboratory.

Scheduled airline service

Eglin is also one of the few military air bases in the U.S. to have scheduled passenger airline service. The Destin - Fort Walton Beach Airport is co-located on the base property.
