Floating Airport
FloatPort, the defining PSP concept of Float Incorporated, was first introduced in 1993. This transportation hub provides an international airport as well as a terminal for commuter and maritime traffic.
  • The Pneumatically Stabilized Platform was originally designed as a means for constructing a new airport for San Diego in the Pacific Ocean, 3 miles off the tip of Point Loma. Known as "FloatPort"

  • It would make San Diego the only deep water shipping port on the west coast and provide the world with its first land, air and sea inter modal transport center.

  • Connected by a tunnel to the western terminus of Interstate 8, one of the city's main collector freeways, FloatPort would be as convenient as San Diego's Lindbergh Field is now.

The Floating Airport and Mega Shipping Port concept for San Diego
 
By almost every standard by which airports are evaluated, FloatPort would be an improvement over most of our nation's airports.
  • Takeoffs and landings would all be over water affecting no populated areas, thereby virtually eliminating noise pollution and substantially reducing aircraft accident risks. The airport could operate 24 hours per day without impact on populated areas.

  • Unlike land based airports, growth and alterations in configuration would be relatively easy to achieve.

  • FloatPort could be the hub of an offshore mass transit system that would utilize high speed surface vessels to connect all the coastal communities. Such a system would provide a new form of mass transit with a minimal infrastructure investment.

  • Unlike a land based airport, the floating airport is surrounded by ocean which is easier to patrol. This will greatly reduce the risk of terrorist attack by shoulder fired missle.

  • With its multiple functions -- airport, shipping port and inter nodal transportation port -- FloatPort could be one of the few vital infrastructure projects that could produce enough revenues to pay for itself.
