Unmanned Aircraft Systems Company Establishes Headquarters in Manassas and Creates 119 Jobs

Rapdidflight, an unmanned aircraft systems company, will invest $5.5 million to establish its systems design and manufacturing operations in Manassas.

The company’s 25,000-square-foot facility is located at 9617 Center Street in Manassas, in the former home of the Georator Corporation, where it will create 119 new jobs over the next three years.

“RapidFlight’s Manassas facility solidifies our city’s position as a leader in the design and manufacture of unmanned aerial systems,” said Mayor Michelle Davis-Younger. “Our skilled workforce, industry-leading businesses and community assets all help make Manassas a world-class destination for businesses and residents alike.”

The company chose Manassas for its talent pool because of the city’s efforts to connect employers with job seekers. The city is also home to Aurora Flights Sciences, a company founded in the city and later acquired by Boeing that also focused on unmanned flight systems.

“Virginia is uniquely positioned to lead the unmanned systems industry, and RapidFlight is at the forefront of developments in this innovative technology sector. We look forward to supporting the company’s growth in the city of Manassas,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin (R). “Since day one, we’ve stated that Virginia is open for business, and companies like RapidFlight are a prime example of the success and growth businesses can achieve in the Commonwealth.”

RapidFlight’s new headquarters in Manassas also places the company near Manassas Regional Airport (HEF), the busiest small airport in Virginia.
