Seems you're affiliated with the Orbital Commerce Project. They recently swung by Georgia Tech for two days with their trailer, and were handing out some flyers from SpaceShot. Obviously, as an AE major, I'm more than a little interested in the concept of publicly available flight training programs. What can you tell me about them?

Post Black Sky Suborbital Training   Posted on: Thu Sep 07, 2006 3:28 pm
OCP's offering is for FAA certification as crew or a pilot. Go to http://www.orbitalcp.com and click on training courses. The pilot course would be a series of four suborbital flights with an anticipated retail price of $300,000 altogether. The last flight would be a science mission where the pilot is flying a new crew member and is the leader of the mission. There is a separate crew training program where members of the pubic can be FAA certified crew to be mission specialists.

We are a sponsor of their tour. I am glad you enjoyed their offering and are interested. The person talking in their half-hour two-screen video show is Jeff Greason, CEO of XCOR which has built the EZ-Rocket and is building the X-Racer and has received FAA approval to test suborbital rockets. The simulation in the OCP van simulates two XCOR rocket engines on the back of a Bearcat.

Actually, they used the X-Racer model and didn't seem to have any sort of propulsion other than the rockets. Might have updated things recently. It's good to see that the spaceflight community is starting to get some serious publicitiy.

The OCP simulator is not based on a Velocity which can haul 1100 pounds--a "minivan" in George Tyson, owner of Orbital CP's words. It's appropriate for the X-Racing League because it needs room for camera equipment, etc. etc. The Black Sky training experience will be tailored for coolness for pilot and crew. It will have more the feel of a fighter jet.
