Boeing Starliner Crewed Test Flight Likely For 2018

2 October 2017
SPACE reported that The Boeing Company said during the International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia, last week that it may delay crewed test flights of its “CST-100 Starliner commercial crew vehicle” to early 2019. Boeing Director of Starliner Crew and Mission Systems Chris Ferguson “said the company was in the middle of a wide-ranging development program with development of flight hardware and testing of many different vehicle systems.” Ferguson said that if two tests in 2018 are “favorable,” the “crewed flight test is fourth quarter – perhaps, depending on the outcome, maybe the first quarter of the following year.” Ferguson said that he has a “very good feeling” that the Starliner will be ready for launch in 2018.
