5/5/06     The first 2-Seat Civilian Space Trainer is shown to the public for the first time.

More can be found on C&Space's website.  There will be alot more to follow on this one.

8/17/05     C&Space and AirBoss have partnered to develop and build an airframe around C&Space's turbopumped LOX/Methane rocket engine.

The question is how do you train the all the future civilian space pilots...the answer is give them a low cost trainer that is every bit an extreme machine.  The jet engine allows for takeoff and landings in a conventional manner.  The plane climbs to its cruise altitude and cruise speed where the fun begins.  A small rocket motor is throttled up and 35 seconds later, the plane is at Mach 1.6 at 50,000+ feet...or pull the nose up a bit and and climb through 75,000+ feet.  Inquiries should be directed to Dave Fawcett with AirBoss.
