Kodiak, AK (SPX) Sep 06, 2018
Alaska Aerospace is hosting an Open House at the Pacific Spaceport Complex - Alaska (PSCA) on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm to celebrate twenty years of launch activities. The public is invited to visit the site, where Alaska Aerospace staff will be providing tours of the spaceport facilities.
"In commemoration of twenty years of launch activity from our spaceport in Kodiak, we are excited about this opportunity to showcase our facilities to the public," said Craig Campbell, Alaska Aerospace President and Chief Executive Officer.
"With our expanded business plan of providing launch services to the new small launch vehicle market, we want people to see the changes we have made at the site and learn about our future plans to provide greater economic benefit to the community," Campbell stated.
Alaska Aerospace conducted its first purely non-government launch of a commercial vehicle from PSCA on July 20, 2018 and has contracts with two commercial companies for additional launches this year.
"As we move forward with bringing new commercial launches to Kodiak, we also want to provide students with greater access to learn about space and get excited about the chance of being part of this activity, as experienced by Peterson Elementary students at PSCA earlier this year," Campbell concluded.
Alaska Aerospace will also be holding a Town Hall meeting that same evening between 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm in the Harbor Room of the Kodiak Best Western Inn. The public is cordially invited to attend this event and learn about current and future launch operations at America's premier spaceport.
