FAA Posts Sierra Space Dream Chaser Proposed Project Information

This post was originally published on this site

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) developed a project website for the public to learn more about Sierra Space Corporations proposed plan to land its Dream Chaser reentry vehicle at the Space Florida Shuttle Landing Facility in Titusville, Florida.

People interested in the project can subscribe to receive project updates and information about opportunities for public involvement.

The Dream Chaser is a reusable reentry vehicle and would be launched as payload on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from a different site. Sierra Space has a contract with NASA to carry supplies to and from the International Space Station.

This proposed project is currently in the pre-application consultation phase. Once the FAA receives Sierra Spaces license application, the agency will begin its license evaluation process.

This includes reviews on safety, environmental impacts, airspace integration, policy, payload and financial responsibility in accordance with FAA regulations and the National Environmental Policy Act. The FAA will make a license determination only after it completes all reviews.

Space Florida is the state-chartered spaceport authority and received an FAA-issued Launch and Reentry Site Operator License for the SLF in January 2021.
