MAKS 2013 has proved that the dreams
about spaceports are begining come true.
A high-flying Houston spaceport project
presented by HAS management company
representatives to the airspace industry
experts can become really one of the
most impressive projects discussed during
MAKS 2013 International Air & Space Salon.
According to the project the proposed
spaceport shall be located in the area
already hosting a large international passenger-
and-cargo airport — George Bush
Intercontinental Airport (IAH). The program
has a whole number of advantages and
will be attractive to both investors and partners
in various fields, beginning from service
provision to aerospace innovations.
The authors believe that the realization of
their project can offer an unprecedented
opportunity for commercial spaceflight to
all interested persons. As Arturo Machuca,
NASA Business Development Manager
pointed out at his presentation, Ellington
Airport (EFD) has much wider perspectives
rather than simply to be used to support
suborbital flight operations. The project
managers envision that EFD could be
a focal point for aerospace innovation —
a regional center for a cluster of aerospace
entities acting as incubators for aerospace
innovation and growth.
