FAA Permit for Blue
As expected, and Alan Boyle reports, FAA spokesperson Hank Price confirmed on Friday that FAA/AST issued an experimental permit to Blue Origin to conduct its rocket tests at the company's under-construction spaceport site in West Texas.
(By now everyone has poured through the 20MB final Blue Origin environmental assessment, signed off by AST in August, which contains juicy details of the company's rocket plans.)
As Hank noted, the one-year experimental permit is renewable. Fire away.
