These will be the very first commercial Pilots-Astronauts, something which will undoubtedly excite the interest of a great many. Successful candidates will have to be very special: both a full course graduate of a recognised test pilot school and highly and broadly experienced. Virgin is looking for pilots with significant experience of both high performance fast-jet type airplanes as well as large multi-engine types – not only that but “prior spaceflight experience is an advantage”.

Prior spaceflight exprience is an advantage when applying?! Awww
will still apply though for the fun of it!

keep us up to date if you decide to apply, good luck, god speed...

P.S. There probably aren't many with space experience so might have a good chance..

Who's gonna sign up? I've got many hours of flighttime... as a passenger. You'd think VirginGalactic will count that for the minimum 3,000 hours?

Funny how the job description says nothing about pay level or benefits. Gotta wonder what kind of hours you'd be pulling each trip:

  • Flight planning
  • Suit-up
  • Pre-flight
  • Lift-off
  • Airtime... spacetime
  • Landing
  • Disembark
  • Post-flight activity
