General Atomics Expands High Desert Operations Near Adelanto

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, March 20, 2019, ground was broken on a new hangar at the El Mirage Flight Operations Facility about 10 miles west of Adelanto, operated by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. It’s here that the next generation of unmanned aircraft used in U.S. military operations overseas will be tested and perfected. About 125 employees, including 35-40 new hires, will work in the 120,000-square-foot hangar, named Hangar 80. The hangar will fit up to 12 aircraft. The defense contractor will soon employ about 2,400 employees locally, David Alexander, president of GA-ASI, told the Daily Press.
