Pacific Spaceport Complex

Owned and operated by the Alaska Aerospace Corporation, the Pacific Spaceport Complex (referred to locally as “the launch complex”) is located approximately 45 miles from the City of Kodiak, in an area called Pasagshak, on Kodiak Island. While historically most activity at the Pacific Spaceport Complex has been conducted by the U.S. government, private industry is increasing activity. According to an interview with former CEO Milton Keeter by Alaska Public Media “Alaska Aerospace is headquartered in Anchorage, and the Kodiak facility employs about 40 full and part-time staff, plus contractors.” (Alaska Public Media, Oct 11, 2022; by Kirsten Dobroth, KMXT)

These part-time staff and contractors oftentimes struggle to find housing when preparing for a launch, which further tightens the housing crunch.
