General Atomics installs Predator Mission Trainer at FTTC

27th March 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical has installed a new Predator MQ-9 Block 5 UAV trainer at the Flight Test and Training Centre (FTTC) at Grand Forks, North Dakota.

The new simulator has been manufactured by CAE and will build on the existing Block 1 simulator and Ground Control Systems.

David Alexander, president of General Atomics Aeronautics, said: ‘The Predator Mission Trainer [PMT] will be used to advance the quality and capability of our… training at the FTTC.’

‘The PMT will increase training efficiency because it allows us to focus our training and repeat training events in the simulator more easily than on an actual flight system,’ he continued.
