About Us


Established in 1998, FTA’s formative years included flight test programs for military and civil systems integration and aircraft modifications on projects such as:

  • Design, manufacture and flight test of externally carried payloads for the Predator UAV
  • Evaluation of EO/IR sensor systems for the Pioneer UAV
  • Operational evaluation and field testing of the APS-144 (podded) radar for the Colombian A-37 interceptor aircraft

In 2008, FTA joined the Northrop Grumman, Counter-Narcotics Global Support (CNGS) team and expanded operations with a focus on international logistical support, including aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul services. We employ full-time and part-time professionals, including engineers, pilots, aviation quality control managers, logisticians, and project managers and have business offices in Africa, Europe, Russia, Southwest Asia, and Central Asia. Leveraging our personnel and global infrastructure, We have demonstrated our ability to quickly move people, material, and supplies into hostile and remote theaters to support rapid response requirements.
