Quotes

"What you're not going to find is 1,100 or 1,600 switches. When these guys go up in this, their primary mission is not to fly this spacecraft. Their primary mission is to go to the space station for six months. So we don't want to burden them with an inordinate amount of training to fly this vehicle. We want it to be intuitive" Boeing's director of crew and mission operations and former shuttle commander, Chris Ferguson, told Aviation Week

"To the best of my knowledge we’re the only CCiCAP competitor that actually was able to complete all of the milestones in the period of performance" he said
