Crestview Technology Air Park (CTAP) is a 20 acre privately owned tract of Crestview real estate situated at the end of the 8,000 foot runway of Bob Sikes Airport. With special tax incentives and located strategically within the Okaloosa County Enterprise Zone, CTAP holds great promise for the creation of 500-600 high technology jobs within the industries of Aviation, Aerospace, Defense, and National Security in Northwest Florida.
Okaloosa County, Florida embraces Eglin Air Force Base, the world’s largest Air Force Installation, hosting the headquarters of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), the 96th Test Wing, and the 33rd Fighter Wing (F-35 graduate flying and maintenance training wing) among others. The region boasts a pro-business local government, award-winning public schools, Florida’s first STEMM middle school, and a myriad of post-secondary education options – including a steady stream of young, technically astute military retirees.
