Spaceport America, NM – March 16, 2016 – Silicon Valley Magazine recently visited Spaceport America to learn more about our new partnership with Ted Turner Expeditions (TTX) and the launch of the Spaceport America Immersion Excursion. The Spaceport America Immersion Excursion is a behind-the-scenes look at the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport. For a one-of-a-kind experience, guests can opt to land their private aircraft at 9NM9 spaceway 16-34, Spaceport America’s two-mile-long spaceway designed to accommodate all types of space and air vehicles known to humankind. Alternatively, expert TTX adventure guides can arrange for helicopter transport or drive guests to the Spaceport America destination.

“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Spaceport America to offer our Ted Turner Expeditions guests in New Mexico this exclusive opportunity to virtually explore space,” said Ted Turner, founder of Ted Turner Expeditions. “The Immersion Excursion tour is a natural and exciting add-on for our guests who visit this beautiful part of the Southwest to escape and indulge their curiosity about the natural world.”

Ted Turner Expeditions (TTX) in New Mexico offers unique adventures tailored to deliver insightful and exhilarating experiences at four locales: Turner’s Ladder, Armendaris and Vermejo ranches and Sierra Grande Lodge & Spa. Each well-appointed property reflects its surrounding geography and its area’s rich history. The close proximity of Spaceport America to the Sierra Grande Lodge & Spa and the Armendaris and Ladder ranches present a serendipitous opportunity for this exclusive partnership.
