Ellington Airport
(IATA: EFDICAO: KEFDFAA LID: EFD) is a joint civil-military airport located within the City of Houston in the U.S. state of Texas, 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Downtown Houston.[1]
The airport was established in 1917 during the height of World War I when aviation was in its infancy. Originally created as a training facility for the United States Army Air Corps, Ellington Airport is currently used by military, commercial, NASA aircraft and general aviation sectors.

Previously known as Ellington Field, the airport is a former airbase of the United States Air Force and is one of the few airfields built for World War I training purposes still in operation today.
