On July 9th, XCOR Aerospace officially announced that it would be bringing a commercial space research and development center to an area next to the Midland International Airport.
Big 2 has checked with the Midland Development Corporation for further details on the project.
The M.D.C. tells Big 2 that XCOR Aerospace is still in the process of hiring people for the new facility.
Renovations on the XCOR Aerospace headquarters are set to begin in early 2013.
Those renovations are slated to be completed next fall.
Some of the earliest people hired for the new facility would initially travel to Mojave, CA for training.
Employees would then move back to the Permian Basin after training is complete.
