On Jan. 10, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., released his 2017 Wastebook Porkemon, which highlighted the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska (PSCA) and the recent contract with Missile Defense Agency as a waste of federal funding. It is my practice to not engage in public discourse with those who disregard facts to make allegations that serve little or no public benefit ; however, as president and CEO of Alaska Aerospace Corp., in this case it is imperative the facts be presented so the public may have accurate information from which to have educated discussions about the value PSCA provides to our state and nation in the 21st century.

A Saturday ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the near-completion of the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska following a rocket explosion at the Narrow Cape facility two years ago.


In August 2014, a test launch of a hypersonic weapon was terminated by a self-destruct mechanism after a faulty thermal cover interfered with the vehicle’s steering assembly.
