The 413th Flight Test Squadron is part of the 96th Test Wing and is based at Hurlburt Field, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. It performs flight testing on C-130 Hercules (to include AC-130, HC-130 and MC-130), CV-22 Osprey, MH-53 Pave Low, UH-1 Iroquois, and HH-60 Pave Hawk aircraft. The second predecessor of the squadron, the 6513th Test Squadron was activated in 1977 at Edwards Air Force Base, California. In 1992, the two squadrons were consolidated as the 413th Test Squadron. The squadron was inactivated in 2004, but reactivated the following year at Hurlburt Field, Florida.
