RPA prophecy fulfilled, oldest RPA squadron celebrates 20 years

On July 29, 1995, the 11th RS was activated at the then Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field, Nevada, as the Air Force’s first dedicated remotely piloted aircraft unit when it assumed operational control of the medium altitude, long endurance RQ-1 Predator aircraft. Today, the 11th RS is responsible for conducting all MQ-1 Predator aircrew initial qualifications training, as well as operator upgrade training and trains an average of 360 Airmen annually.
