New Mexico’s Spaceport America hosted ten private pilots and 24 of their guests in a first ever Fly-in event held today at the spaceport on Valentine’s Day.

Visiting aircraft at today’s event ranging from a large twin-engine, 6-passenger Cessna aircraft to a two seat, homebuilt, RV 4, parked on the spaceport apron around the iconic “Gateway to Space” terminal hangar building.

Spaceport America is the first purpose-built commercial spaceport in the world. The launch complex is situated on 18,000 acres adjacent to the U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico.
