MQ-9 49th AMXS Jet Black Lithograph art.

The 49th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (49th AMXS) maintains the MQ-9 “Reaper” aircraft along with associated Ground Control Stations in the Air Force’s largest flying training operation. The 49th AMXS is based out of Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. The squadron supports the 6th Reconnaissance Squadron as well as the 9th and 29th Attack Squadrons, enabling the graduation of pilots and sensor operators in support of the Air Force’s largest Formal Training Unit. The MQ-9 Reaper (formerly named Predator B) is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) capable of remote controlled or autonomous flight operations, developed by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) primarily for the United States Air Force. The MQ-9 and other UAVs are referred to as Remotely Piloted Vehicles/Aircraft (RPV/RPA) by the USAF to indicate their human ground controllers. The MQ-9 is the first “hunter-killer” UAV designed for long-endurance, high-altitude surveillance.
