The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) announced that it received support from the State of Florida in its efforts to transform Cecil Airport into a 21st century commercial spaceport when Space Florida officially designated Cecil as a “Space Territory” on June 9.

The Space Territory designation affords a number of opportunities. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) now has legal authority to fund spaceport-related transportation facilities within Cecil to better accommodate horizontal launch space travel. 

Cecil recently received grant funds from the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) for the development of a Spaceport Master Plan.  Combined with Space Florida’s decision, JAA will now be able to pursue funds to design and construct new roadways, taxiways, and assembly and payload facilities.
