Boeing announces their tentative CST-100 flight schedule

2017 can’t get here fast enough!! They should conclude CDR in March 2015, which will allow them to begin manufacture in earnest.

Here’s their test/launch schedule as of now:

Apr 2017: Orbital Flight Test (unmanned)
Jul 2017: Crewed Flight Test
Dec 2017: USCV-1 mission to resupply ISS (and Capture the Flag)

Woot-woot!! We’ll see if SpaceX comes out with a schedule in response — my guess is that they probably won’t.

Lots more of Boeing’s going-ons at the link.
