XCOR Aerospace said that the XCOR Lynx Mark I cockpit has been delivered.
AdamWorks engineers, along with XCOR engineers, performed several successful pressure tests before it was packed and shipped to XCOR.
The cockpit is the principle major subassembly XCOR needs to begin assembly of the Lynx suborbital spaceplane.
“The successful pressure testing of the Lynx cockpit and its delivery is a major milestone for us,” said XCOR Founder and CEO Jeff Greason. “This will enable us to accelerate toward integration, ground testing and first flight over the rest of this year.”
XCOR Aerospace builds safe, reliable and reusable rocket-powered vehicles, propulsion systems, advanced non-flammable composites and rocket piston pumps. Learn more at www.xcor.com.
