Who has access to Cape Canaveral? Can I bring my spouse / family / friends to watch a launch?
Answered by Admin: Only badged personnel can access the Cape. There is no current public viewing area on station for launches. The 45th Space Wing Public Affairs Office does have a tour of the facilities during non-launch times and subject to availability.
The are several paces off base, mostly public parks, where civilians can watch launches.
Answered by Admin: Patrick is an Air Force Base, and Cape Canaveral is an Air Force Station. The Kennedy Space Center is a NASA facility. The Air Force and NASA work together here for technical and practical support.
This is a website dedicated to our men and women serving at Patrick AFB, FL. Its purpose is to provide military personnel the information necessary for their move to the area. This information is for both on-post/base and off-post/base at Patrick AFB, FL. This is not an official military website.
