OverviewSuggest Edit

Skyfront is an aerospace startup that designs and manufactures affordable, long-endurance, autonomous aircraft. Skyfront’s first product, the Tailwind, is a long-endurance hybrid gasoline-electric drone that flies longer than existing battery-powered drones. Skyfront’s technology enables commercial drone applications like package delivery, search and rescue missions, precision agriculture on large farms, and infrastructure inspection, which have largely been unattainable due to range and endurance limitations.
