Welcome to the Spaceport Office
Florida leads the nation as the fastest growing, most comprehensive, and forward facing state for space-related development, manufacturing, and flight. To maintain this lead and provide incentives for innovators in every facet of the national space industry to locate their operations in Florida, the Spaceport Office developed and administers the Spaceport Improvement Program (SIP) which has funded 34 capital infrastructure projects since 2012, generated nearly 2,600 permanent, high paying jobs, and contributed more than $1.7B in economic value to the state.
The Spaceports Office works with Space Florida to administer the SIP, to plan and fund strategic spaceport projects and to assist with state spaceport-related issues. The SIP provides funding for projects that improve aerospace transportation facilities, encourages cooperation and integration between airports and spaceports, and facilitates and promotes interagency efforts to improve commercial space transportation capacity and efficiency. Florida’s three Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed spaceports are located at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Jacksonville Aviation Authority’s Cecil Spaceport, and Titusville-Cocoa Airport Authority’s Space Coast Regional Airport and Spaceport.
As one FDOT team, we serve the people of Florida by providing a transportation network that is well planned, supports economic growth, and has the goal of being congestion and fatality free.
Deploy the Department’s work program to attract and support long-term commercial aerospace industry through the Spaceport Improvement Program (SIP), advance the Department’s Mission & Vision and collaborate with Space Florida to make Florida the ‘Place For Space.’
