Description

Arnold Air Force Base is not a typical military installation. The base is almost 40,000 acres, with a 4,000- acre lake. Military family housing has only 39 units for married accompanied military personnel. It hosts no flying units, and the number of assigned military personnel and government civilian employees is about 10 percent of the base's work force. Arnold AFB is also the only active duty Air Force base in Tennessee. The base is the largest employer in the local area and has an annual economic impact of more than $400 million on the Middle Tennessee economy.

Mission

The Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) mission is to test aircraft, missile, and space systems and subsystems at simulated flight conditions and conduct a research and technology program to develop advanced testing techniques and instrumentation, as well as support the design of new test facilities.
