Jackson County Aviation Technology Park

AvTech Parkway

Moss Point, Mississippi 39563


Located contiguous to the Trent Lott International Airport, this 230 acre aviation technology park has already acquired its first tenant - Northrop Grumman Autonomous Systems, whose 105,000 square foot Unmanned Systems Center facility has been operational since January 2006. The Park is less than a mile from 4-lane MS Hwy 63 and 1 mile from Interstate 10. With permitted sites, exclusive ramp space, and the ability to taxi aircraft from runway to facility, in addition to the capacity to provide engine run up and test flights, the Park is quickly emerging as one of the regions premier facilities for aviation-related businesses. The park is included in the Foreign Trade Zone #92.
