About Trans-Atlantic Flight
General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc. (GA‑ASI) made the first-ever trans-Atlantic flight of a MALE Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) on July 10-11. GA-ASI’s capital MQ-9B SkyGuardian RPA flew from the company’s Flight Test and Training Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota, to the Royal Air Force (RAF) Fairford station in Gloucestershire, England. The aircraft will then be on display July 13-15 for the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) airshow being held at RAF Fairford. The flight and display will commemorate the RAF’s 100th anniversary celebration called RAF100.
