GA-ASI con­firms plans to open RPA Train­ing Academy


Gen­eral Atomics Aero­nau­ti­cal Sys­tems Inc (GA-ASI), a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of re­motely pi­loted air­craft (RPA) sys­tems, radars, and elec­tro-op­tic and re­lated mis­sion sys­tems so­lu­tions, con­firmed plans to open a RPA Train­ing Academy in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

GA-ASI has signed a 10-year lease and is ex­pect­ing to break ground soon. GA-ASI flight crew train­ing will com­mence early next year and the com­pany ex­pects to welcome its first for­eign mil­i­tary sales (FMS) cus­tomers shortly there­after.

“The mis­sion of the GA-ASI Train­ing Academy is to in­crease the over­all ca­pac­ity for flight crew train­ing on our air­craft sys­tems,” said Lin­den P. Blue, CEO, GA-ASI. “The Train­ing Academy will com­ple­ment our cus­tomers’ or­ganic train­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and fill the grow­ing need across our RPA en­ter­prise to ad­dress the pi­lot short­age.”
