Elon Musk is planning to build his own private airport in Texas, multiple sources told Austonia . The local publication cited individuals who said that plans for an airport east of Austin, near Bastrop, had been confirmed although the exact location and timetable were unknown. Musk has based several of his companies, including SpaceX and the Boring Company, in Texas, and moved his Tesla HQ from Silicon Valley to Texas in December . The airport could be used to service and develop these operations. Musk and his companies own thousands of acres of land in central Texas, including 2,100 acres for Giga Texas, while SpaceX and the Boring Company have also been acquiring land in recent years. It's unclear what the scope of the airport would be, though nearby Austin Executive Airport spans 585 acres . Musk is spending more time in Texas as the company ramps up ramping up production at his gigafactory there, which he recently described as a "giant money furnace" . Building a private airport requires approval from the FAA , as well as passing environmental standards set by the agency . Local regulations may also apply, but Bastrop council and its economic development organization told Insider they were not yet aware of any plans. A representative for Musk didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Sign up for notifications from Insider! Stay up to date with what you want to know. Subscribe to push notifications
