XCOR is focused on the research, development and production of safe, reliable, reusable launch vehicles (RLVs), rocket engines and rocket propulsion systems. In just eleven years the firm has developed and built twelve different rocket engines and built and flown two manned rocket-powered aircraft. The EZ-Rocket, completed in 2001, was the first such vehicle built and flown by a non-government entity. In 2008 they completed flight testing of their second vehicle, the X-Racer, ending the test program with a record-setting seven flights in one day. Between the two vehicles, XCOR has safely flown a piloted rocket operations demonstrator aircraft 67 times. Those flights successfully proved that their reusable rocket engines are capable of intact abort, multiple flights per day and in-flight restarts. Their team has accumulated nearly 4,000 engine firings and 500 minutes of run time on our engines.
