New Glenn’s Maiden Flight Has Been Delayed

Current Target For New Glenn’s Maiden Flight Is Q4 2022

As major progress is being made on the New Glenn launch vehicle and its Cape Canaveral facilities, Blue origin admits that the schedule has been 'refined' to match the demand of Blue Origin’s commercial customers.

The current target for New Glenn’s maiden flight is Q4 2022. The Blue Origin team has been in contact with all of their customers to ensure this baseline meets their launch needs.

This updated maiden flight target follows the recent Space Force decision to not select New Glenn for the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) Phase 2 Launch Services Procurement (LSP).

New Glenn is proceeding to fulfill its current commercial contracts, pursue a large and growing commercial market, and enter into new civil space launch contracts. They hope to launch NSSL payloads in the future, and remain committed to serving the U.S. national defense mission.

Recent milestones include completion of a New Glenn first stage mockup simulator, completion of a structural test facility, and hardware milestones for tanks, stage modules, and composite fairings.

In addition to program progress, more than 600 jobs have been created in the region. Blue Origin has invested more than $2.5 billion in facilities and infrastructure at all sites, including $1 billion invested in the rebuild of historic LC-36, which is nearing completion.
