Cuts could put Colo. spaceport plans in jeopardy

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A proposal by the Federal Aviation Administration to close a control tower at the Front Range Airport could put plans for a Colorado spaceport in jeopardy.

The closure is just part of the cuts being considered by the federal government.

According to KMGH-TV, the initial focus of the spaceport could include a space-pilot training center, with commercial operations possibly coming later.

Closing the tower would save the FAA about $600,000 a year.
