The Lynx - A Revolutionary Flight Concept
From the renowned American manufacturer XCOR, the two seater Lynx represents new, especially safe techniques employed for the departure into space:
Like a standard aircarft, it takes off and lands horizontally, and during the flight its rocket fuel propulsion can be activated and deactivated as required.
The cockpit offers a comfortable space, and is specially designed to provide to the participant optimum panoramic views. The Lynx is designed for adventurers, not especially for travellers, who will fly in the passenger compartment. You will sit right beside your pilot!
When Is Take Off?
All developments are moving ahead so that in the nearest future the required 50 test flights for the American F.A.A. can take place, 17 of which will reach the full height of 61km with the Lnyx Mark I.
The Lynx Mark I will perform his testflights to be ready later and will carry passengers regularly for up to 4 times a day.
