FAA/AST affirms commitment to safety with first ever course approval

Today the FAA awarded Black Sky Training the first ever safety approval for space training. This signals that the FAA/AST continues the commitment to safety for the flying public that began in 1958. “The flying public has come to expect the highest level of safety for its passengers, and training for the men and women whose job it is to transport passengers to and from their destinations. By establishing a standard protocol for training of the flying public and flight crews, they [the FAA/AST] have signaled the burgeoning space flight industry that nothing but the highest safety standards are to be provided to the passengers.”

Black Sky Chairman George Tyson went on to say “We continue with our philosophy of ‘train and train the right way’ by having several ground courses, as well as the flight courses currently in the approval process. “

Spokesman David Allen confirmed that Black Sky Training was working on course offerings that number well into the double digits, “we set out, at inception, to be the leaders in Space Flight Training, whether it is for the participants, flight crew, or pilots. And with this approval, and the pending courses, we are well on our way to fulfilling our goal of multiple training programs at multiple sites.”

Black Sky Training is a privately held Space Flight Training Company. Home office is Oviedo, Florida.
