Exciting Test Flight News
More exciting news from Mojave this morning! At 7am, SpaceShipTwo touched down safely having completed a second “feather” flight.
One further glide flight, potentially within the next week or so, will see the completion of an unprecedented period of successful test flight activity (six flights in around a month) and herald the start of a couple of months of slightly less visible activity.
Scaled has amassed a wealth of data and experience from the recent flurry of test flights which is now undergoing thorough analysis. Engineers will be addressing any issues arising from this, as well as performing detailed vehicle checks as they prepare the spaceship and carrier aircraft for the next phase of flight testing.
Congratulations to the whole team at Scaled for the dedication and hard work that has made so many flights possible in such a short time period.
