Ga. spaceport decision near, but more study needed, FAA says
KINGSLAND, Ga. (AP) — A federal agency expects to announce its decision Monday on whether to allow a launchpad that would fly commercial rockets from coastal Georgia.
However, the Federal Aviation Administration is emphasizing that a license authorizing Camden County to operate a spaceport would not yet permit the launch of any rockets.
In a letter released Friday by the FAA, the agency said a more comprehensive review would be needed before any rockets can be launched.
Camden County has spent nearly 10 years and $10 million on the project.
Opponents have gone to court to try to block the county from purchasing land for the spaceport.
