Scaled Composites SpaceShipTwo Accident: NTSB Investigation Update
Our business is to design prototype, cutting-edge aircraft. Safety has always been a critical component of Scaled’s culture and, as the NTSB noted today, our pilots were experienced and well-trained. As part of our constant and continuing efforts to enhance our processes, we have already made changes in the wake of the accident to further enhance safety. We will continue to look for additional ways to do so. We extensively supported the NTSB’s investigation and appreciate all of its work to make the industry safer. Mike Alsbury exemplified the passion that all our employees share. He and his family are always in our thoughts, and they are especially so today.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) met on Tuesday to determine the probable cause of the October 31 2014 SpaceShipTwo flight test accident.
