General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. (GA-ASI) opened a new permanent hangar Monday afternoon at Grand Sky UAS Business Park.
Program Manager Ev Dunnick says the 24,000-square foot facility replaces a temporary hangar, part of the company's Flight Test and Training Center.
Dunnick says the new hangar represents a $4.5 million dollar investment by GA-ASI.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony featured North Dakota Senator John Hoeven; Randy Richards, representing North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer; Linden Blue, CEO of GA-ASI; David Alexander, President of Aircraft Systems for GA-ASI, and Thomas Swoyer Jr., President of Grand Sky Development Company.
The event coincided with the start of the 11th annual UAS Summit and Expo, being held through Wednesday at Alerus Center.
