Wind tunnel near Ft. Walton Beach Can't Post

What is the closest wind tunnel to Ft. Walton Beach?

My job is taking me away from my local DZ on Saturday so I was hoping to supplement my training with a little bit of tunnel time.

Any help would be appreciated.

You'll get a better response if you tell everyone what State Ft. Walton is in, as there might be more than one city by that name, or many people won't recognize it.

Nowhere really close. Your closest is in Orlando, clear on the other side of the state.

Orlando! Now we're getting somewhere! Is this Orlando, Nebraska?

You know, the way the Gulf of Mexico kinda gets in the way of automobile travel, going from the Florida panhandle to Orlando might be longer than going to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, home of Dolly World and all that touristy stuff. I assume the wind tunnel is still there?

To the original poster, I'm afraid you're out of luck finding a conveniently close wind tunnel to Ft. Walton Beach. I've vacationed there. It's one of my favorite places.

John, I actually meant to put the state in the original post.

Thanks for all of the info. It was a moot point anyways since we didn't get to Eglin until late and left early the next day.

That's unfortunate. Fort Walton's not a terrible place to be...except for skydiving...
