Home of the 412th Test Wing Home of the 412th Test Wing

The 412th Test Wing is the host wing for Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. -- the 2nd largest base in the Air Force. The wing oversees base day-to-day operations and provides support for over 10,000 military, federal civilian and contract personnel assigned to a 481-square mile installation.

The 412th Test Wing plans, conducts, analyzes, and reports on all flight and ground testing of aircraft, weapons systems, software and components as well as modeling and simulation for the U.S. Air Force. There are three core components for this mission: flying operations, maintenance and engineering.

The Air Force Flight Test Center was re-designated as the Air Force Test Center July 13, 2012.

The Air Force Test Center plays a critical role in developmental test and evaluation for AFMC's air and ground systems and is an essential cornerstone to the command's consolidation initiative from 12 centers to five.

The AFTC is comprised of the following installations:

412th Test Wing
Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Arnold Engineering and Development Complex
Arnold Air Force Base, Tenn.

96th Test Wing
Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.

The 96th TW plans, directs and documents test and evaluation of armament, navigation, guidance systems, and command and control systems.

The 412th TW performs test and evaluation on aircraft and systems and influences weapon systems design to make sure they meet operational warfighting, combat support or training requirements. The 412th TW also operates the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School.

Arnold Engineering and Development Complex scientists and engineers perform ground tests, engineering analysis and technical evaluations for all the U.S. armed forces, other government agencies and commercial aerospace industry on aircraft, missiles and space systems at the conditions they will experience during a mission for research, system development and operational programs.
