10 April 2014, Mojave, CA – XCOR Aerospace announced today 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 re-accelerate toward integration, ground testing and first flight over the rest of this year.”

 

Andrew Nelson, Chief Operating Officer of XCOR added, “Our clients and partners are very happy to see this significant sign of progress.  I could not be more happy with our designers, engineers and team who have worked so hard on this major accomplishment. We are that much closer to suborbital operations.”
