Spaceport America beckons a brave and pioneering new breed of commercial space entrepreneur.


Our FAA-licensed horizontal and vertical launch areas are home to a growing community of bold space innovators. Some of the most respected companies in the commercial space industry are permanent tenants: Virgin Galactic, SpaceX, UP Aerospace, EXOS Aerospace, and EnergeticX Pipeline2Space.


With a secure campus of 18,000 acres set in the beautiful, sparsely populated, and high-elevation (4,600 ft) desert of southern New Mexico, 340+ days of sunshine, and 6,000 square miles of protected airspace – our tenants are free to dream, research, engineer, manufacture, test and launch – and free from prying eyes, bureaucratic red tape, and bad weather. Our North and East campuses are now open and ready for both build-to-suit tenancy and ad-hoc flight test campaigns.

Economic Impact in FY 2016 (million)

Over 1,500 students and faculty gathered in Southern New Mexico for second annual Spaceport America Cup in 2018. Drawn by the opportunity to collaborate and compete at a world class spaceport facility, they represented the best and brightest from more than 70 institutions located all across the USA and around the world.

Join us as we once again host hundreds of the worlds most ambitious collegiate rocketeers in a one of a kind event. Part academic conference and part design-build-fly style competition, the Spaceport America Cup has something to offer students, faculty, industry representatives, and amateur aerospace aficionados alike.
