General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA-ASI) will be expanding its Flight Test and Training Center (FTTC) at the Grand Sky Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Business Park near Grand Forks, North Dakota.
This expansion will cater for increasing demand from GA-ASI’s U.S. and international customers for flight crew training and sensor system testing.
“We’re excited to expand our footprint at Grand Sky as part of our FTTC in Grand Forks,” said Linden Blue, CEO, GA-ASI. “This growth from 5.5 acres to 20 acres will benefit our customers and strengthen our commitment to the Grand Forks community by building out our test and training capacity.”
As part of the expansion, GA-ASI plans to add a second permanent hangar with more office and classroom space in the near term and also to at least double the workforce in the coming years.
