Growth in commercial space transport requires predictable access through civil airspace. Determining the amount and duration of airspace disruption to accommodate launch and recovery activities is part of a safety analysis. While safety improvements in the development of commercial space vehicles can serve to minimize airspace disruption, certain policy questions about access and priority must be addresses in order to accommodate sustained operations. In doing so, the international community should seek balance between the competing demands of civil aviation and commercial space operators.
