GA-ASI opens new FTTC hangar

4th September 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) has opened its new Flight Test and Training Centre (FTTC) hangar at the Grand Sky Unmanned Aircraft System Business Park near Grand Forks, North Dakota.

The hangar replaces the temporary facility that has been in operation since June 2016. It will house GA-ASI operational hardware, including UAS and ground control stations (GCS), as well as offices and conference rooms.

The company’s FTTC hangar is built to house three GA-ASI-owned UAS – an MQ-1 Predator A and two MQ-9 Predator B (Block 1 and 5) along with two GCS (Block 15 and Block 30 Mobile).

GA-ASI’s FTTC operation also includes an office building near the University of North Dakota campus. The facility contains classrooms and a Predator Mission Aircrew Training System to aid academic and simulator training programmes.
