In a press conference at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the Sierra Nevada Corporation announced today that the first orbital test flight of its re-usable Dreamchaser spacecraft will be from Kennedy Space Center on November 1, 2016. From the SNC press release:

Dream Chaser will be brought to orbit on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket that is being built in Decatur, Alabama and will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida.


Sierra Nevada also announced that, in partnership with Lockheed Martin Space Systems, they plan to use former Shuttle flight processing facilities at KSC and the runway at the Shuttle Landing Facility.

The full press release is here. I'll post the video of the press conference if and when it becomes available.
