Spaceport Colorado lands FAA license, moving closer to space tourism flights near Denver

Written by on August 22, 2018

All systems are go for a small airport east of Denver to become Spaceport Colorado, a take-off spot for tourists catching rides to space. The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday approved a commercial spaceport license for Front Range Airport in Adams County, six miles south of Denver International Airport, the county said. They’ve pushed to see the airfield near Watkins authorized to host space flights that take off horizontally from its runways and help establish an industry taking travelers to edge of space. Greg Avery/Denver Business Journal
