Arnold Engineering Development Complex is the nation's largest aerospace ground flight simulation complex. It has played a key role in the development of the nation's high priority military jet aircraft, long-range missiles and space systems as well as commercial aircraft. In addition, our complex operates wind tunnels, jet and rocket engine altitude test cells, space chambers and ballistic ranges.

The Complex has designed an extensive network of resources to put you, the community, in touch with Arnold Air Force Base. We are in an an exciting and challenging time, and we'd love to share our plans with you.

AEDC welcomes the opportunity to show the Complex to tour groups. The tour consists of a video presentation and a tour of the major facilities, and takes approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Tours are offered Monday through Friday, except for holidays and the Christmas to New Year's period.
