Freefaring was an illegal though still common way of launching a spacecraft into The Earth's atmosphere and beyond for the purpose of spacefaring. Freefaring involved a spacecraft taking off wherever they physically could and so did not rely upon a spaceport, either governmentally or privately owned, for the launch. Freefaring was a way of avoid the spacefarers' tax which was why it was made illegal, however, if a freefarer was caught, they would face extensive jail time and would certain lose all spacefaring permits.
