Review | NAPS / Freddy De Pues “Eglin AFB”
Not tested with Global Airports.
Review by Angelique van Campen in ASN-Aerosoft
The host unit at Eglin is the 96th Test Wing (formerly the 96th Air Base Wing). 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.
Destin–Fort Walton Beach Airport (IATA: VPS, ICAO: KVPS, FAA LID: VPS) is an airport within Eglin Air Force Base, near Destin and Fort Walton Beach in Okaloosa County, Florida. No private aircraft are allowed, so Destin Executive Airport is used for non-commercial operations. The airport was called Northwest Florida Regional Airport until February 17, 2015 and Okaloosa Regional Airport until September 2008.
Destin–Fort Walton Beach Airport is served by the regional airline affiliates of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines which fly nonstop regional jet service to their respective hubs in the southern and eastern United States. Delta Air Lines also operates mainline jet service to its hub in Atlanta (ATL), while Allegiant Air flies mainline jets to MidAmerica St. Louis Airport (BLV) located near Belleville, IL and also to its midwest base in Cincinnati (CVG) as well as to several other destinations. In 2008 the FAA recorded over 373,808 enplanements at the airport. (Wiki)
