SpaceX still on track for USAF certification in June

AF releases results of Space Launch Process review. The USAF completed phase 1 of its review of its certification process and agrees that changes should occur, specifically:

The panel recommended ways that the Air Force’s New Entrant Certification Team could better focus the process on the new entrant’s ability to deliver qualified hardware, support, and processes to meet requirements. As a result of this review, the Air Force and SpaceX will revise the June 2013 Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to immediately adopt these recommendations.

This is good news for the tax payer as well as for SpaceX. The Air Force will likely take the money saved on SpaceX launches to build more golf courses for its palatial bases, but they’d be nice golf courses! I kid, I kid…mostly.
