Proposed Colorado Spaceport Could Be Suborbital Spaceflight Hub

•, by Leonard David

Front Range Airport, striving to be the home of Spaceport Colorado, signed a letter of intent last month with Rocket Crafters Inc. for horizontal launch, dual-propulsion, suborbital flight operations at the general aviation airport.

Founded in late 2010, Rocket Crafters Inc. of Titusville, Fla., is focused on development, manufacturing and distribution of rocket propulsion and dual-propulsion (jet/rocket) suborbital flight vehicle products to the commercial markets in the space, space exploration and defense industries.

  a statement from the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (Metro Denver EDC), the letter of intent outlines a mutual plan to promote and develop Spaceport Colorado at Front Range Airport as the preferred commercial spaceport in America’s heartland.
Front Range Airport has 996 acres of developable land adjacent to existing ramps or is master planned to be accessible to ramps and taxiways. A 6,300-acre business park is also planned for development to support airport-related commercial activities and businesses with direct access to highway, rail, and airport services.
