Air Force Base Hoedspruit (AFB HSPT)(IATA: HDS, ICAO: FAHS) is an airbase of the South African Air Force and was officially opened on 1 July 1978 by the then Minister of Defence, Minister P.W. Botha. It is located adjacent to the Kruger National Park. In the late 1990s an unused portion of the base was converted into a civilian airport known as Eastgate Airport. The 5 375 ha base was officially opened on 1 July 1978. It was designed from the start to be a highly protected wartime base. As such, it has armoured and underground hangars, with revetments placed close to the runways for aircraft on immediate take-off standby duty.
