With the Launch Site Operators License in sight, Spaceport Camden is gaining momentum and the state of Georgia is looking even more appealing to the aerospace industry. A major highlight for Spaceport Camden and the state of Georgia is being crowed number one in the 2020 annual Aerospace Manufacturing Attractiveness Rankings report. Georgia beat out all 50 states including states with well known spaceports: Florida, Virginia, Texas and California. Georgia is on its way to leading the new space race.
With an ideal location on the coast of Georgia bordering northeast Florida, Camden County is strategically positioned to be one of the most important commercial spaceports in the United States. Once approved, Spaceport Camden will be the only exclusively vertical, non-federal range on the East Coast.
Camden County, Georgia has an exciting opportunity to make history again. The emerging commercial space market is poised to fuel the future growth in Georgia’s space industry, and we are well positioned to capitalize on the global $420-billion space industry.
