What Others Say

State and national aerospace, military and political leaders are enthusiastic about the potential impact Spaceport Camden will have on the growth of Georgia’s economics and academics.

  • Major General Robert S. Dickman | United States Airforce (Retired)

    “Having overseen the Eastern Range for the United States Air Force and been involved with commercial space for the past decade, I can attest to the growing launch demand in the commercial space sector. Spaceport Camden is an ideal location for the safe launch of the small satellites and rockets that are rapidly becoming the most important segment of this new market.”

  • Doctor Bobby Braun | Aerospace Engineer

    When I would give the "Safety is GO for launch" during the final minutes of countdown, I knew that our ground team had examined every safety and quality issue.  I knew we had done the hard work to assure the crew, the vehicle, the experiments, the workforce, the public, and the environment were safe.  I see the same commitment to the public and the environment from our county and state leaders as they lay the groundwork for the Spaceport as a world-class research, education, and technology center.”

  • Doctor George Nield | Former Associate Administrator for Commercial Space

    “If approved, this project will serve as the foundation for a space sector transformation in Southeast Georgia. It will create both direct and indirect jobs and increase tourism. This project would be a boost to both higher education and STEM programs across the state.”

  • Governor Brian Kemp | State of Georgia

    ”...the State of Georgia should be extremely proud of the significant achievement by Camden County in obtaining complete enough status from the FAA. If approved, Spaceport Camden’s launch site operator’s license will represent a significant catalyst both for economic development, and for Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)...”

  • Governor Brian Kemp | State of Georgia

    “Camden County is showing what is possible when local leaders come together, think outside of the traditional box, and find a way to maximize their community’s greatest assets. The state of Georgia is firmly behind Camden County and we encourage the FAA to swiftly approve its Launch Site Operator’s License application.”

    Governor Brian Kemp

    State of Georiga

  • Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan | State of Georgia

    “With the acceptance of Spaceport Camden’s Launch Site Operator License application by the FAA, we are on the cusp of bringing high tech, high paying aerospace jobs to coastal Georgia and new STEM education opportunities to all our students.”

    Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan

    State of Georgia

  • Newt Gingrich | Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

    “Spaceport Camden may begin to help reverse that trend [of losing educated Georgians to other states] by creating high-paying technical jobs in Camden County, surrounding counties, and the Georgia coast.”

    Newt Gingrich

    Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

  • Vice Admiral Al Konetzni | Camden County Resident

    “The Naval Submarine Base at Kings Bay and the Spaceport can certainly coexist. We’ve seen nuclear powered warships moor at Cape Canaveral for decades with no issues whatsoever. Clearly, operational agreements will be made, communications protocols will be necessary, and emergency assistance sharing would assist both entities.”

  • Harry O'Hanley | CEO of ABL Space Systems

    “The aerospace industry in Georgia is strong and Georgia’s favorable business climate, Camden’s aerospace history, high tech military workforce and advantageous geographical location make Spaceport Camden a desirable location for both manufacturing and launching spacecraft.”
