On January 22, 2014, FAA/AST approved 5 courses for Black Sky Training. The addition of these courses to the BST’s first ever FAA approved space flight training course, High Altitude Physiology, given in BST’s Hypobaric Chamber, fulfills BST’s offering for the Space Flight Participant Series.
These revolutionary courses allow BST to offer FAA approved courses to train as commercial astronauts for not only Space Flight Participants, but to those wanting to become pilots of rocket powered RLV spacecraft and to any licensed pilot wanting to hone or advance their skills.
BST’s “modular” approach to training allows students to select courses from a 3-day package, a 5 day package or the complete 8 day course. The 8 day course is intended for those wishing to “Learn to fly to the Black SkyTM” with one of the sub-orbital or future orbital flight providers. This is the only flexible training program in the world, and now with FAA approval, exceeds most providers training requirements.
BST is excited to continue moving forward with course offerings and programs designed specifically with Commercial Space travel in mind. Training for safety, educating for funTM.
