Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The XCOR EZ-Rocket is a test platform for the XCOR rocket propulsion system. The plane is a modified Rutan Long-EZ, with the propeller replaced by first one, then a pair of pressure-fed regeneratively cooled liquid-fuelled rocket engines and an underslung rocket-fuel tank. The engines are restartable in flight, and are contained within Kevlar armour shielding for safety reasons. The EZ-Rocket is registered as an experimental aircraft. First flight took place on July 21, 2001, flown by test pilot Dick Rutan. On a typical flight, the EZ-Rocket takes off on rockets, gains altitude for a minute or so, then switches off the rockets and glides to a ''dead stick'' landing. The vehicle actually flies better during ''dead stick''/glide landings than a Long-EZ due to lack of drag from a stationary pusher prop the vehicle''s aerodynamics are ''cleaner'', in spite of its belly tank.
