Feather Flight and Nitrous Vent Test Success
SpaceShipTwo took to the skies again yesterday on a beautiful calm Mojave morning for an important test flight. This was her 24th glide flight and the 6th in-flight test of her patented feathered re-entry system.
The flight test team also successfully verified SS2’s nitrous loading and venting system, another key milestone on the way to our first powered flight. Galactic’s Chief Pilot David Mackay was at the controls of the WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft, and Scaled’s brilliant pilot Mark Stucky was in command of the Spaceship. We’re happy to report that all of yesterday’s test objectives were successfully met.
