Advancing the State-of-the-Art in Aerodynamic Testing

Calspan's story begins with the opening of an aerodynamic research laboratory in 1952. As the team’s experience, reputation and expertise grew, the company evolved into a preferred resource for designing and building wind tunnels for outside aeronautical and aerospace organizations.

Calspan continues to be the world’s top supplier of wind tunnel facilities, components and test services. Through our vast experience as both a test facility supplier and user, we stand uniquely qualified to help organizations in government, industry and academia advance their technology and prove their designs.
