The UK government have stated that they want the UK to be a centre of excellence for space technology and have approached eight sites around the country as possible locations for a space terminal.

Llanbedr is well placed to bid for this as it is coastal with clear flight paths, could expand its runway to accommodate the projected aircraft sizes, is relatively easy to get to, and has acceptable weather patterns.

How this would co-exist with GA (general aviation) is yet to be determined, but our plans are continuing unabated as either way, it is an exciting opportunity for the region and for Fly Llanbedr.  Lots more coverage an comments is available on our Facebook page, and in the general online media.
