Vehicle Updates
Rocketplane® has entered the detailed design phase of the project that will last through Critical Design Review. Cockpit definitions are in the works, and bigger windows have been added to the design, along with more structural modifications. A V-Tail has now been adopted and incorporated into all systems definitions. As initial manufacturing has begun, structural testing of the wing is right on schedule at Wichita State University.
