Spaceflight

Our primary mission is to design and build a safe, reliable, and reusable space-plane that can fly from a runway to the Karman Line and return to land like a conventional aircraft. We also offer a textbook and a series of courses for those who are interested in suborbital spaceflight. Space is only 100km away … and we are here to fly!

The Suborbital Pilot’s Ground School Manual 2nd Edition

The Suborbital Pilot’s Ground School Manual can be used as a primary source of ground school information for pilots interested in suborbital spaceflight and for anyone wanting to learn more about flight into the 100km (62mi) altitude range. This 2nd edition has been written during an exciting time when Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo has just started piloted test flights into space! This manual provides you with the information necessary to gain the required ground school knowledge to prepare for flight into suborbit. It is meant to fill the gap between what you have learned in aviation and what you need to know to fly into suborbital space. Subjects included: Suborbital Space Environment – High Altitude Operations – Suborbital Rockets – Instrumentation, Navigation, and Communications – Space Law. This ground school manual will provide you with an organized and efficient system for learning the required subjects quickly and accurately. It is a great first step in the transition process for air pilots to become space pilots.

Suborbital Spaceflight Gound School

Our Suborbital Spaceflight Ground School is an organized and efficient system for learning about flight into the 100km altitude range.   Whether you want to take a ride as a tourist with Virgin Galactic, conduct research on a Blue Origin Flight, transition your piloting career to a new level, or just learn the fundamentals about spaceflight, our courses will help you get a step closer to your goal.
