Dream Chaser space plane gets FAA approval to land at Alabama airport

Cargo missions returning from the International Space Station are now authorized to touch down in the Cotton State.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just issued a license allowing the Huntsville International Airport in Alabama to accept landings from Sierra Space’s Dream Chaser space plane when the vehicle starts flying. That said, Sierra Space (or any other provider) will still need a vehicle operator license before reentering over the airport, FAA officials noted.
