AURORA | Colorado’s aerospace industry is like an engine, and it’s hot.

That’s how Adams County Commissioner Steve O’Dorisio likens the momentum of interest in the state a year after the designation of SpacePort Colorado at the Front Range Airport in Watkins, just outside of Aurora.

O’Dorisio, like many other state and local government officials, say Colorado’s Front Range is now uniquely positioned to attract international business to the state because of the facility, which boasts that “the first mile is free.” Mile high area. Get it?
