The state of Oklahoma is entering into a partnership with Valkyrie Systems Aerospace, with plans for manufacturing facilities, flight operations and training to take place in Oklahoma City.
Valkyrie was recently awarded a 21st Century Quality Jobs Program incentive contract that will create 352 new high-paying local jobs within the next five years. Valkyrie CEO Glenn Dawson said the company expects to begin operations in Oklahoma later this year.
“Oklahoma already has some of the top aviation companies in the world, and they are starting to grow the unmanned arena as well,” Dawson said. “The state of Oklahoma is well on its way to become the leader in unmanned aerospace development and manufacturing.”
