Virgin Galactic - Pilot-astronauts wanted, apply within

 

The world’s first commercial spaceline is now accepting qualified applications for pilot-astronauts.

 

Pilot-astronaut responsibilities include the WhiteKnightTwo and SpaceShipTwo spaceflight system test program in accordance with government regulations and company policies in Mojave, CA and Virgin Galactic’s commercial operations at Spaceport America in New Mexico.

 

Virgin Galactic said that prior spaceflight experience is desirable - go to Virgin Galactic careers for more information.

 

On its website, Virgin Galactic noted: "Virgin Galactic is dedicated to becoming a world leader in sub-orbital commercial space tourism with a longer term vision to develop space technologies that have the potential to open space to significantly more people and users."

 

Pilot-astronauts are a vital part of its efforts to creating a safe and enjoyable commercial suborbital space flight. Virgin Galactic actively strives to promote innovation, value, integrity and a sense of enjoyment in all that it does.

 

Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic escorted Virgin America into its new Terminal 2 home in San Francisco last week.

 

Meanwhile, the first video from inside the Virgin Galactic spaceship was recently revealed.
