Cecil Field Spaceport

RS&H has worked closely with the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) throughout the entire process of planning and developing Cecil Spaceport.

Spaceport Licensing and Environmental Assessment
We prepared the documentation and Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of JAA’s application to obtain a launch site operator license with the Federal Aviation Administration Office of Commercial Space Transportation. The effort resulted in both a Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the EA and the issuance of the license, allowing JAA to operate the launch site. JAA can now offer Cecil Airport as a commercial launch site to operators with horizontally launched, suborbital, and reusable launch vehicles. 

Spaceport Master Plan
RS&H also prepared a Master Plan to guide the future development of the spaceport. The plan maximizes the ability of Cecil Airport to host both aviation operations and commercial spaceport operations on the airfield with minimal interference between the two operations.
