Alaska Aerospace has clarified details pertaining to commercial launch activities and development plans at the Pacific Spaceport Complex - Alaska (PSCA), located on Kodiak Island, following misinformation across social media channels.
Alaska Aerospace is responsible for any and all infrastructure development at PSCA, limiting air travel near PSCA, impact to public lands near PSCA and notifying the community of these plans.
While Vector Launch Inc. will be conducting an orbital launch at PSCA later this year, Alaska Aerospace does not currently have a contract with Vector or any other commercial launch vendor for construction of a new launch pad at PSCA.
