ARNOLD AIR FORCE BASE, TENN. — The National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex, managed and operated by AEDC, remains the world’s largest aerodynamics test facility and, because of its large size, has a wide range of testing capabilities that are unmatched by any other facility of its kind.
NFAC, a geographically separated unit located at Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif., is primarily used for determining the aerodynamic characteristics of large-scale and full-scale fixed wing, rotorcraft and powered-lift vertical and short take-off and landing aircraft. Additionally, it has the capability to perform other non-traditional types of wind tunnel testing on test articles as varied as wind turbines, parachutes and long-haul trucks.
