The problem is that despite public claims to the contrary, the nitrous oxide-rubber hybrid has never been hot fired on the ground at full duration, sources indicate. And the engine is not powerful enough even when fully fired to get SpaceShipTwo into space with any actual payloads (i.e., six wealthy passengers).

Hmm, I think I know a company that has experience building rocket propulsion systems for aeroplanes. Rumour has it they're currently looking for work...
