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."
