The Final EA addresses the potential environmental impacts of Space Florida’s proposal to construct and operate the SLF as a launch location for horizontally launched and landed rockets. The Final EA considers the potential environmental impacts of the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. The successful completion of the environmental review process does not guarantee that the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation would issue a Launch Site Operator License to Space Florida. The project must also meet all FAA requirements of a Launch Site Operator License. Individual launch operators proposing to launch from the site would be required to obtain a separate launch operator license.
