The development of the Cecil Spaceport has taken a step toward the sky with the opening of a new air traffic control tower this month.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority will celebrate a grand opening on Tuesday, but has already moved air traffic control operators into the new tower. The transition into the new tower comes after the spaceport launched an independent website in March and hired Matt Bocchino to be its managing director this summer.

“The goal is satellite deployment,” Bocchino said. “The goal, and where the money is made, is not carrying people, but deploying satellites.”
