Skyborne Technology Acquires Costin Airport In Port St Joe, FL

Unmanned Systems, Inc To Manufacture Drones And Train Pilots

Skyborne Technology has acquired Costin Airport in Gulf County, FL for flight operations, manufacturing and unmanned aircraft systems training.

Unmanned Systems, a manufacturer of unmanned systems and drones will be moving part of its manufacturing and training to Gulf County, Costin Airport to further enhance the joint effort between Skyborne Technology and Unmanned Systems. "Skyborne Technology and Unmanned Systems will help build employment in Gulf County, Florida to further develop the educational needs in high tech manned and unmanned systems," stated Don Bintz, President of Unmanned Systems, Inc.

Jim McKnight, Director of Economic Development for Gulf County, Florida, said, "Skyborne Technology has become the good news people for our county, first they open a plant in the County's Wewahitchka Industrial Building, then make an offer on the Costin Airport, then hire their first three Gulf County staff and have now closed on the purchase of the Costin Airport, which will be used for assembly training and flight operations. Skyborne Technology staying the course of developing facilities and operations on both ends of the County has been a beacon of hope during our community's response to and recovery from Hurricane Michael."

"We are looking forward to the upcoming airship and drone test flights at Costin Airport as this is strategic for our customer base in Central America and the Caribbean as a one stop shop for inspection of the technologies," stated Dr. Carlos Arzu, President of Skyborne Central America.

"The co-location in our community of these two manufacturing leaders in the unmanned aerial vehicle arena provides an unprecedented opportunity for the citizens of Gulf County!  In conjunction with the related training opportunities under development in the local high schools, and underway at Gulf Coast, these companies are poised to fully develop and deploy these transformational technologies, becoming a magnet for high tech opportunity in the region," said Dr. John Holdnak, President of Gulf Coast State College.

"Skyborne chose Gulf County for both the political support and local assets that will insure Skyborne's growth and opportunities. We are planning a press conference in the next two weeks to display several of our air assets at the recently acquired Costin airport," stated Mike Lawson CEO of Skyborne Technology, Inc.

Skyborne Technology is a developer, manufacturer and integrator of next generation manned and automated first responder communication, unmanned airship and drone aviation systems.
