Component testing is already under way. Subscale testing will continue through the second quarter of 2014, much of it in parallel with systems engineering evaluations to validate the flight profile. Much of that focus will be on the transitions from under balloon to under para wing flight regimes, Tabor said.

Assembly of the first full-scale systems should be under way in mid-2014, followed by full-scale component testing and construction of the first commercial flight balloon in 2015, Tabor said.
