Members of Edwards AFB’s Honorary Commanders Program pose in front of the United States Air Force Test Pilot School’s Variable Stability In-Flight Simulator Test Aircraft (VISTA). The honorary commanders were given a tour of base facilities Nov. 8.†The Honorary Commanders Program pairs community leaders with Air Force commanders at Edwards AFB to foster a better working relationship between Edwards and the neighboring communities. The honorary commanders are invited on base several times throughout the year to experience some of what the base has to offer. In turn, some HCCs may invite their commander to experience what the local community has to offer.
