Skyborne Technology, Inc., a designer and developer of manned and unmanned next generation aviation systems, opened its new manufacturing facility in Gulf County, Florida.

The company is a next generation manufacturer and developer of manned, unmanned aircraft and sea systems worldwide with offices in Central America, South America and the United States.

Skyborne said it chose the area specifically to have access to employ manned and unmanned aircraft pilots, skilled manufacturing labor for composites, aircraft aluminum and high bulletproof fabrics.

As part of opening of the new manufacturing facility, Skyborne Technology will unveil their Airship and Drone technology to begin testing their aviation products for target markets such as Agriculture Assessment, Communications, Education, Defense, Border Security, Health, Natural Disasters, Policing and Traffic Control.

Warren Yeager, Director of the Gulf County EDC said, "Gulf County has been working with all parties on this project for a matter of months. We are very excited to land a project of this magnitude that will diversify our local economy and fits the type of industry that we are trying to attract."

"It is our pleasure to become part of the community of Wewahitchka, Port St. Joe and Gulf County, Florida," stated Deborah Cheek, Senior Vice President of Public Relations, "as we plan to create up to 100 jobs to support our manufacturing and flight training for our unique aircraft products to help solve domestic and international objectives."
