The Suborbital Pilot's Ground School Manual

Authored by David LeFrancois

The Suborbital Pilot's Ground School Manual can be used as a primary source of ground school information for pilots interested in suborbital spaceflight and for anyone wanting to learn more about flight into the 100km (62mi) altitude range. This 1st edition has been written during an exciting time when the first human rated commercial suborbital vehicles are just starting to come on-line.

This manual provides you with the information necessary to gain the required ground school knowledge to prepare for flight into suborbit. It is meant to fill the gap between what you have learned in aviation and what you need to know to fly into suborbital space.

Subjects included:

- Suborbital Space Environment
- High Altitude Operations
- Suborbital Rockets
- Instrumentation, Navigation, and Communications
- Space Law

This ground school manual will provide you with an organized and efficient system for learning the required subjects quickly and accurately. It is a great first step in the transition process for air pilots to become space pilots.
