TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 20, 2018 — General Atomics‘ aeronautical systems unit is planning to expand its flight test and training center in North Dakota in an effort to address the increasing demand for sensor system testing and flight crew training from U.S. and international clients, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
