Pilots Troy Asher and Stu Broce walk out of NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center’s (AFRC) hangar in Palmdale, California, toward the flight line. In addition to aeronautics research, Flight Operations personnel support such missions as the Mars Perseverance Rover, slated to launch in July 2020.

Armstrong’s Building 703 in Palmdale opened in 2007 at the former Rockwell International/North American Aircraft production facility in Palmdale. The Los Angeles World Airports Board of Airport Commissioners endorsed a 20-year lease agreement with NASA for use of a large hangar and surrounding acreage at the facility adjacent to U.S. Air Force Plant 42.

Specialized science platform aircraft, such as the DC-8 flying laboratory, high-altitude research aircraft ER-2s, C-20A, Gulfstream III and the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, are based at the facility. Building 703 contains about 422,000 square feet of floor space, including 210,000 square feet in the central hangar area and an equivalent amount of office space on four floors.

飞行员特洛伊·阿舍和斯图·布罗斯走出美国宇航局阿姆斯特朗飞行研究中心(AFRC)位于加利福尼亚州帕姆代尔的飞机库,走向飞行路线。除了航空学研究,飞行操作人员还支持预定于2020年7月发射火星毅力号漫游者等任务。

阿姆斯特朗在帕姆代尔的703号大楼于2007年在帕姆代尔的前洛克威尔国际/北美飞机制造厂开业。洛杉矶世界机场委员会的机场专员与美国宇航局签署了一项为期20年的租赁协议,租赁美国空军42号工厂附近的一个大型机库和周边区域。

其中,DC-8飞行实验室、高空研究飞机ER-2s、C-20A、Gulfstream III和平流层红外天文观测台等国产化科学平台飞机均设在该设施。703号建筑面积约为42.2万平方英尺,其中中央机库面积为21万平方英尺,四层为同等面积的办公空间。
