Once easy-atmospheric flight is conquered THEN you should worry about near-light-speed antics.
As it stands now there's a very controlled industry on flight-craft in this world.
It's either too expensive, too regulated or too complex for joe blow to get airborne.
THAT is what need's to be looked into first and foremost.
