Falcon Heavy illustration (SpaceX) SpaceX said this week that they are now planning a first launch of their long-delayed Falcon Heavy launch vehicle in April or May of 2016. A company official, speaking at the AIAA Space 2015 conference, said they are currently planning that launch for late April or early May of 2016 from Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. That launch will be a demonstration mission without a commercial payload, and will be followed by the Space Test Program mission for the Air Force in September. SpaceX, when announcing the Falcon Heavy in 2011, had planned a first launch in 2013. SpaceX delayed plans for an inaugural Falcon Heavy launch late this year after the Falcon 9 launch failure in June.
