The Space Review: Commercial crew’s critical year, 27 Jan 2014 [cached]
"The purpose of that will be to test our launch, orbital operations, and autonomous entry, descent, and landing," said Steve Lindsey, a former astronaut who is now SNC's Dream Chaser program manager, at the press conference. A second test flight, with a crew on board, is scheduled for 2017.

"We're going to launch out of LC-41 and we won't be going to the space station," Steve Lindsey, SNC senior director and Dream Chaser program manager, said. "It will be an uncrewed orbital flight of several orbits - probably a day- long mission or so - landing back on the west coast."
"The purpose of [the flight] will be to test out our launch, orbital operations, autonomous entry, descent and landing, which is something we need to certify for the eventual ISS missions as well," Lindsey, a former NASA space shuttle commander, said.
"The vehicle will be basically identical to the vehicle that we will fly a year later when we put crew on it. Our intent is to have all those systems onboard and checked out and use this on the path to certification for the orbital crewed vehicle," Lindsey explained.
"We are going to go fly [the test article] out at Edwards Air Force Base again, do another autonomous flight or two," Lindsey described on Thursday in response to a question from collectSPACE. "Then we are going to outfit it with an ejection seat and we are going to do crewed atmospheric flight testing much like the [space shuttle] Enterprise ALT program about a year later."
"All those are flight test milestones along the way to this first orbital flight in 2016," he said.
