General Atomics Concludes Nearly 42-Hour Endurance Flight Test of Gray Eagle Variant

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Aug. 28, 2017 — General Atomics has completed an endurance flight test of an extended-range variant of the MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned aircraft system in which it flew over a 41.9-hour period, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.

The company said Thursday the MQ-1C ER took off from El Mirage, California, for a flight that serves to simulate a U.S. Army mission and surpassed the goal of 40 hours as it prepares for a “first article test” with the service branch in Utah beginning late this month.
