The UK Government will soon be selecting a site to become the UK’s Spaceport. Campbeltown Airport, Glasgow Prestwick, and Newquay and RAF Llanbedr are the main contenders

We believe that Campbeltown Airport is the best site for the UK Spaceport because:

1) It is the only site with a runway that is excess of the required 3,000 metres

2) It is in an area of low population density – but is only a 30 minute flight from Glasgow International Airport

3) There are regular commercial flights in and from the airport

4) It has unrivalled available airspace

5) It has good on-site infrastructure and over 1,000 acres available for development

6) It has already been approved twice for space flight, once by NASA and once by Virgin Galactic

Therefore, we call upon the UK government to select Campbeltown as the site for the UK Spaceport.
