Sierra Nevada Corporation Announces Ne Dream Chaser® Spacecraft – Designated Landing Site Program

SPARKS, Nev. (September 10, 2015) – Sierra Nevada Corporation’s (SNC) Space Systems announces the launch of a new program, the Dream Chaser®-Preferred Landing Site Program, in which SNC will work with spaceports and commercial airports to become a designated landing site for the Dream Chaser spacecraft.

“The number of applicants requesting spaceport licenses both domestically and internationally has increased dramatically over the past 24 months,” said John Roth, vice president of business development and strategy for SNC’s Space Systems. “SNC’s Dream Chaser spacecraft is the only commercial space vehicle that is capable not only of a runway landing, but landing on runways that already support commercial aircraft. SNC has created this program based on the tremendous interest we have received to date from spaceports and airports around the world that want to host Dream Chaser landings as a stimulant to their local economies.”
