If you read more into it they called the whole thing off. Too much risk. One of the test flights failed. Timing the rocket ignition is tricky. Good call in my opinion. As badass as a successful operation with one of these would be, my heart would ache too much to see it fail.

Didn't we invent the helicopter? This looks like a solution with no problem.

I imagine the thought was they could quickly drop/pull more equipment/personel in one go. Even then, I think I would rather spread the risk amongst multiple helicopters than one iffy rocket plane

How do pilots walk when their balls are obviously bigger than their legs?
