Colorado Air and Space Port Partnership Announced

Adams County and Colorado Air and Space Port (CASP) recently announced a partnership with PD Aerospace of Japan to operate at CASP. The announcement occurred less than a year after the Federal Aviation Administration gave the approval to Colorado to pursue a Space Port designation at the general aviation airport formally known as the Front Range Airport in Watkins. PD Aerospace is developing a reusable sub-orbital spaceplane to take the first steps towards unmanned space flights and the launching of satellites. The long-term goal would be development of vehicles for space tourism and eventual point-to-point transportation. Aerospace is a targeted industry for business growth in the region.
