According to the current plan, the first test flight of a manned Dragon without a crew should take place as early as next month. Given the numerous delays in the creation of the ship, most experts are quite skeptical that SpaceX will really be able to launch it in the planned time frame. But so far, NASA has not made any official statements about the transfer date, limiting only general comments about the possibility of changing the date.

In the absence of any new information about the date of the first launch, we recall that the second flight of the new Dragon is scheduled for the end of this - the beginning of next year. On board the ship will be two NASA astronauts. During the 14-day mission, they dock the Dragon with the ISS, spend 8 days aboard the station, and then return to Earth.
In addition to the manned Dragon, the Boeing CST-100 Starliner spacecraft is gradually moving towards the flight test stage. His first unmanned flight is scheduled for this fall.
