The New Neighbors

Although the San Simon Valley has a long history of aviation folks are always saying "don't fly over my house".  FAA regulations are always followed so there is no problem.  But wait till the new neighbors start flying.  Spaceport America is located about 140 miles by air north east of Amigos del Cielo air park and a little over 200 miles by vehicle.  They have just christened their new runway and installed several pads for rockets.  In fact, several successful test launches have already occurred at the spaceport.  Soon it should be possible to watch launches as well as returning vehicles from the valley.


  1. I did not know about the new Spaceport-very interesting.

  2. Yes, Virgin Galactic will be offering space flights to the public.
