Huntsville targets Dream Chaser landings as Sierra Nevada ties grow

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Huntsville International Airport is moving closer to a goal of becoming the first commercial airport that will be a landing spot for Sierra Nevada Corp.’s Dream Chaser spaceplane.

A project team is working to secure funding to conduct additional studies this year and to submit an application for a commercial landing license to the Federal Aviation Administration.

This follows a study last year that demonstrated the compatibility of landing the Dream Chaser on the airport’s existing runway and taxiway.
