XCOR Lynx: Cockpit engineering model

Before creating the final cockpit, we first made a full-sized engineering model to help us engineer its various sub-systems including avionics, life support, ingress-egress, seat hardware, payload locations and more. This model was pulled from a mold that was also used to make the final item.

In this photo, the engineering model of the Lynx cockpit has just been pulled from its mold, which sits upright and partially obscured by the tarp on the left.

It’s all about the gear on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
